A Distinctive Urban District

circle plan
Gateways are key entrances that provide the critical first impression of a neighborhood. Successful gateways help to create, retain, and reinforce the distinctive features that give an urban district its unique identity. The
mixed use and eclectic nature of the Larkin District makes it especially critical to define strong gateway conditions that welcome the visitor and introduce the key design themes of the District.

The Larkin District plan calls for streetscape amenities to enhance the attractiveness of the District including new street furniture such as benches and trash receptacles, landscaping, period light fixtures, brick pavers and a façade improvement program for storefronts along Seneca Street. A coordinated wayfinding program will guide users to the district and to destinations within the neighborhood.

Street and traffic calming designs and the incorporation of pedestrian amenities are important improvements for the Larkin District. Cars moving along roads with designated bike lanes, tree plantings, identifiable pedestrian crosswalks, on-street parking and narrow traffic lines will move slower and contribute to the over all District goal.

Wayfinding signs will lead visitors, residents, and employees to prominent and distinctive gateway treatments proposed in these graphics.

From the ramps of the I-190 Smith Street exit and at the intersection of Fillmore and Seneca Streets; Hamburg and Exchange Streets and Swan Street at the railroad overpass updated wayfinding signs and improved open spaces at these key intersections and gateways will all contribute to the overall personality of this Buffalo neighborhood of innovation.
