State ready to buy Riverbend property

Riverbend

A project that aims to bring hundreds of new jobs to Buffalo is moving forward.

On Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a deal for the state to buy the property for Riverbend. The 88 acres of land will be home to the state-of-the-art facility for high-tech and green energy businesses.

The investment is expected to create 850 permanent jobs and at least 500 construction jobs.
