Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - One lawmaker wants to get moving on Waterfront development, and transfer a prime chunk of real estate at a bargain basement price.

Congressman Brian Higgins is calling for the NFTA to sell 384 acres of property along the Outer Harbor for two dollars.

Higgins will make his arguments for the sale price during a news conference Monday morning.

The NFTA has announced that it is getting out of the Waterfront business.

Both the City of Buffalo and the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation have expressed interest in the land.
