Major Developer Gets Five Million Dollar Tax Break

Buffalo, N.Y. - Despite objections from County Executive Poloncarz saying it was a waste of taxpayers' money, Uniland Development has received $5 million in tax breaks to build a new $46 million  headquarters for Catholic Health on a vacant piece of land on Genesee Street in downtown Buffalo.

Under the plan, Catholic Health would consolidate its operations at the new building and create a job training center. It says the move will bring 600 jobs downtown and that it will create new 50 jobs as part of the project.

Although the request for the tax breaks had been in the pipeline for a while, Uniland and Catholic Health already held a ground breaking ceremony for the project, and that fact left Erie County legislator Tom Loughran to question whether Uniland really needed the money to go forward.

"This is a great project and I want to see it built, but it seems like we're giving the store away after that fact," said Loughran.
