About Schneider Development

President and founder Jake Schneider, a second generation architect, began his development efforts with a mission statement committed to the adaptive reuse of vacant and derelict properties in Buffalo’s downtown core. Jake’s expertise, gained over 35 years as a practicing architect in Western New York, has given the company a distinct professional advantage for adaptive reuse and mixed use development projects. His experience in the fields of historic architecture, project delivery, project estimating, construction methods, construction materials, design, scheduling and project management have favorably positioned us to design and develop high caliber properties.

Over the years, we have cultivated strong relationships with debt and equity markets, public sector stakeholders, contractors, design professionals and all necessary parties required to structure a successful project. Whether you are looking for the perfect space to fit your needs, or a have a piece of property you are looking to either sell or redevelop – give us a call today.
