New York developers moving ahead with projects
The construction industry was deemed as an “essential business” that can continue operating under Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s newest executive order, but developers say it’s still not completely business as usual.
At first glance, commercial development seems to be relatively unscathed. Major projects continue almost unabated, particularly public-sector projects or those considered to be of high priority.
“So far in Western New York it seems like all construction is ongoing,” said Jon Williams, owner of Ontario Specialty Contracting and South Buffalo Redevelopment. “This may change tomorrow, but as far as right now, no interruption.”
