  • The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus’s rapid growth, with over one billion dollars of new construction, has contributed to Buffalo’s resurgence. The new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences of the University at Buffalo and the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital are the most recently completed projects.

    This tour will view these new buildings as well as the Gates Vascular Institute and other Medical Campus buildings. (Note: this is an exteriors-only tour. The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus tour offers interior access).

    Related to the construction boom on the Medical Campus, the adjacent historic Allentown neighborhood has seen significant renovation of many of its historic buildings.

    This tour will view many of these restoration projects, particularly those on and around Main Street. Come and join us to see the amazing transformation of this neighborhood – with over 150 years of history from Ulrich’s Tavern to the new Medical School!
