Buffalo ranked “Hottest Construction Market”
BUFFALO — Buffalo Rising reported Mayor Byron Brown has responded to the recent Business First article that placed Buffalo as the “hottest construction market” in the Northeast. Using data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the announcement of the ranking has been making waves throughout the region.
“We continue to build a city of opportunity in Buffalo and this ranking is further acknowledgement of the economic resurgence that’s underway in Buffalo,” said Brown, noting that $5.5 billion in economic development activity is currently underway which is expected to create over 12,000 new jobs. “This is great news that adds to the momentum and we will continue to look for ways to promote job growth so that any city resident who needs work can find work, be it in construction or in any other industry.”
Mayor Brown touts the economic turn by stating that his strategic plan from 2006 is what helped to cause much of the momentum that we are seeing today.
