In April 2019, Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and Buffalo State College President Katherine Conway-Turner officially announced that the college’s affiliate BSCR Corporation, has been chosen as the designated developer for 166-170 Dart Street, the current site of the City Impound Lot. It is located on the western campus border, adjacent to Building 50 and parking lot G-20.
BSCR Corporation will have 18 months to develop a plan for the 8.8-acre parcel and to complete the purchase of the property. The possibilities for development of the land are open; there is no pre-determined use for the site. As a land-locked institution, Buffalo State has a rare opportunity to extend its campus footprint, while contributing to the revitalization of Buffalo's West Side.
As ideas emerge for the use of this unique parcel, the college will work with internal and external constituents toward a fnial plan and development vision that will:
August 2019 - November 2019: Advertise the RFP and recieve proposals from developers
November 2019 - April 2020: Review proposals from developers; present Public Concept Exhibition; create opportunity for campus and broader commuinty input; interview qualified developers; recommend concept/developer
May - June 2020: Approve concept/developer
June - October 2020: Coordinate final documents for negotiation and sale of property
October - December 2020: Seek City of Buffalo Common Council approval of final property purchase; begin phase II of the Dart Street Project (program, design and construction)
