The Wright County Economic Development Authority (EDA) has put out Requests for Proposals (RFP) for the old Wright County Government Center in search of a developer to transform the property in downtown Buffalo for a new use.
EDA Chairman Darek Vetsch said that one of the primary reasons for starting a county EDA was to market and sell two properties that were vacated when Wright County moved all its employees to the Braddock Avenue NE campus north of Buffalo – the Government Center and the Health & Human Services Center. The EDA already has a signed agreement to sell the HHS property and hopes the RFP will garner interest in the Government Center property.
“Wright County and the City of Buffalo have collaborated to determine prospective uses for this unique property,” Vetsch said. “We’re in the process of soliciting developers and working with the private sector to come up with proposals for the highest and best use for this property. After months of discussion and review, we are excited to put this RFP out and are looking forward to see what proposals come back to determine what use is in the best interests of the citizens of Buffalo and the citizens of Wright County alike.”
