 In 2012, Erie County Executive and ILDC Chair Mark C. Poloncarz made a priority of redeveloping Lackawanna's former Bethlehem Steel site into a thriving manufacturing and warehouse commerce park. 

 In 2018, the ILDC completed the purchase of the initial 150-acre parcel along Route 5.



         In 2019, Erie County funded and completed a public bike path and the extension of Dona Street into the property. The ILDC completed the relocation of a railroad on the site and commissioned an infrastructure Master Plan.

         The greatest milestone in 2019, however, was the commitment made by Buffalo cleaning products manufacturer TMP Technologies. TMP had outgrown its current Dingens Street facility, and chose Renaissance Commerce Park to expand its   operation.

          They purchased 26 acres off the Dona Street Extension and built a brand new 290,000 sq. ft. facility, making TMP the first official manufacturer located in Renaissance Commerce Park.

         TMP's total private investment is estimated around $22.7 million, adding 20 new jobs and ensuring the retention of 103 full-time positions. For more information about the TMP project, please click here:  TMP Technologies Press Release PDF


        In 2021, Uniland Development agreed to purchase a ten-acre parcel for a new-construction commercial warehouse building,
