The transformation of an empty parking lot began when First Niagara Bank moved its corporate headquarters to the historic Larkin District in 2009 allowing the bank to be closer to many of its commercial clients and leading professional service firms in Buffalo. Most important, it demonstrated the bank’s commitment to the city. It was the first of many initiatives to revitalize and promote the rebirth of Larkinville.
The Larkin District has become a catalyst for Buffalo’s growth and redevelopment – and KeyBank is proud to name the area as its Northeast Regional Headquarters.
KeyBank’s support of the Larkinville neighborhood is an important investment to make Western New York an exciting, vibrant place to live, work and play. We are pleased to be the presenting sponsor of Larkin Square’s unique and entertaining programming such as the KeyBank Live concert series, Food Truck Tuesdays and more. With something for everyone, Larkin Square is where whimsy is had amongst the warehouses—and business and community come together to create new possibilities and help our region thrive.
