Empire State Development

Howard Zemsky has co-chaired the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council during the past four years and has worked closely on the governor’s Buffalo Billion revitalization initiative. His company, Larkin Development Group, has redeveloped approximately 1.0 million square feet of historic building space in Buffalo since 2002, with a particular focus on reclaiming Buffalo’s earliest industrial neighborhood, the Larkin Historic District.
