Travel through Buffalo’s industrial heritage by foot or by bike and the story of Buffalo’s working waterfront will unfold around you. The industrial heritage of this area was referenced in interpretive elements that identify historic and contemporary industries and in materials utilized from our industrial past such as recycled Belgian Blocks.


The project consisted of the construction of an industrial heritage trail along abandoned CSX railroad right-of-way. Also included in the project are historical timber benches, architectural lighting and heritage markers and landscape beds. The construction of a new fishing pier, a boardwalk area, park space, seating and provisions for public art make this a destination for residents, tourists, and families. A covered pavilion was built to highlight the new pier and provide a new signature element along the waterfront. Urban provided the construction inspection of this project.
