In Western New York, not far from the great thundering torrents of Niagara Falls, the state’s largest metropolis outside of New York City rises above the shore of Lake Erie. With more than a quarter-million residents, Buffalo, NY is a major city with a long history of growth and expansion. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the Erie Canal, rail transportation and other industrial progress put Buffalo on the map to stay. Development continues to be part of Buffalo’s story, as recent revitalization efforts have brought renewed vigor. As one of the area’s top property management companies, Westlake Development is part of that effort, serving the development needs of commercial and retail entities across the Buffalo-Niagara region.

Pre-Construction Services

Before we build anything else, we build your trust. Much of this happens in the pre-construction phase, when efforts must be made to address the numerous challenges that face any development project.

Our proven track record in pre-construction stems in large part from our long history in real estate brokerage and development. We excel in estimating, site evaluation, risk management, geotechnical consultation, entitlement exploration, securing of permits and more. The years of success and thorough understanding of these areas give Westlake a major advantage over most construction-only firms.
