BNMC’s Master Plan Proves The Need For Trico.

According to the BNMC, we don’t need one Trico building, we need at least four of them!

In the 2010 BNMC Master Plan, the BNMC plans to add over five million square feet of space on the campus over the next 20 years.

When looking at the proposed uses outlined in the plan, there is over 2 million square feet planned for the medical campus that could use a building like Trico. Because Trico has large, open floor plates, it can be easily re purposed. Trico’s vacant, 600,000 sf of space can be used for office, residential and incubator space, all three uses which the BNMC needs. Looks like we don’t need one Trico, we need four!

The Trico building has striking similarities with several of Buffalo’s success stories including the Larkin Exchange Building, Tri Main Center and the AC Lofts. We have seen several successful adaptive reuse projects in Buffalo with this type of building and considering it’s location and the need for space on the medical campus, there is no reason why 66% of Trico should be demolished.

Check out the needs of the BNMC from their 2010 master plan. The highlighted ones represent the uses that need a building like Trico. All information was pulled directly from the 2010 BNMC master plan.
