SESSION 2: Adapting, Reusing, & Growing
Adaptive Reuse & Buffalo
Presented By: TinaMarie Kumiega
Buffalo is in the midst of a renaissance, and everywhere you look our historic buildings are being repurposed into loft apartments, retail complexes, shopping centers, and more. Join us for this talk that will take an in-depth look at the concept of adaptive reuse and the way it’s being employed to reinvigorate Buffalo’s economy.
Presented By: Katie O'Sullivan
From water vessels and horses to railroads and streetcars, to roads and expressways, Buffalo's changing passenger transportation system has shaped the city's form and economic function over the past two centuries. Today, as market demand shifts back to city centers and groundbreaking technological advances, we anticipate profound transformations in public transportation and the auto industry over the next 30 years. Ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft are the newest addition to the growing menu of transportation options in WNY, along with bike-share, car-share, carpooling, bus, rail, private shuttles, and improved facilities for walking and biking. We’ll discuss the basics of how these services work, and how evolving transportation options could improve mobility and access across our diverse region.
