500 Seneca:
 Kevin Hays from Savorino Companies moderated a well-attended, informative event at 500 Seneca in February.  Sam Savorino provided an overview of the redevelopment of the building, while Julian Adams presented an overview of the Historic Preservation Tax Credit program.  Becky Gandour and Jason Yots outlined some of the incentive programs offered in the City of Buffalo and throughout New York State.

Sports Oriented Development: Elizabeth Holden, Partner and Hodgson Russ LLP moderated the ULI Sports-Oriented Development event in April.  Each of the panelists provided a unique perspective on the topic, including the legalities of the development of sports facilities, strategic planning efforts behind the renewal of Detroit and Pittsburgh’s sports-oriented districts, facility design over the past century, and what we can expect in the future.

WLI Fireside Chat: ULI Western New York held its first Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) in February.  The event was a fireside chat with Kathy Behan, Executive Vice President at First Amherst Development Group.  Attendees raved about the program that promoted camaraderie among female colleagues in the real estate industry.

A few ULI WNY members took part in this year’s Undy Run.  The Undy Run/Walk is a family-friendly event created by the Colon Cancer Alliance.  It is unique because participants are encouraged to dress up and get talking about colon cancer.  When we speak up, we know we are saving lives and honoring loved ones.
