Over the past decade, we have turned what was once nearly lost into a point of pride for the City of Buffalo. But it’s just the beginning. 

This landmark revitalization project—487,000 square feet of buildings on 42 acres of land—is an anchor in Buffalo’s cultural corridor.

While three core structures and the renewal of the South Lawn have been completed, significant redevelopment remains.

Saving the complete expanse of the Richardson will require resources and support from every corner of the region. Whether you live across the country or in the Elmwood Village, if you recognize the architectural significance and community impact of the Richardson, there’s a way to support its reactivation.
