The former Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo is located within one of the city’s most vibrant and grown neighborhoods. It’s vacancy leaves behind challenges and opportunity for the community. The opportunity is a transformative one. It is a canvas to return 7 acres of institutional structures into a block that reintegrates with existing neighborhood fabric. The challenge lies in the canvas not being a blank one. The canvas includes 612,000 sf of strucutural space, over 5 distrinct structures, orginally constructed between 1912 and 1992.
