Property

The NFTA's Property Management department manages more than 200 acres of real estate property, including rail rights of way, plus airport and waterfront property.

The NFTA is also a partner in the redevelopment of Buffalo's Inner Harbor at the foot of Main Street in downtown Buffalo. The NFTA has extended the riverwalk and created a public plaza near the DL&W Railroad Terminal where Metro Rail cars are stored. The DL&W Terminal riverwalk opens up to the public a whole new area of the Buffalo River. By creating public access to the terminal, the NFTA is laying the foundation for economic development of the 80,000 sq. foot space on the second floor.
