West Seneca Development Center

1200 East & West Road
West Seneca, New York
Erie County


The West Seneca Developmental Center is a New York State, Office for Persons With Developmental Disabilities-managed facility for the care of persons with developmental disabilities. In 2011, the facility closed its residential buildings and the site currently houses administrative and maintenance offices for the region.

The main campus, with approximately 38 buildings on 350 acres, is situated back from East and West Road, and accessible by paved interior roads that circle the entire perimeter of the property. Most of the buildings were constructed in the early 1960s and are of uniform architectural style, predominantly brick masonry with single-pane aluminum windows. All utilities are available throughout the property, including gas, electric, water and sewer.

The West Seneca Developmental Center is situated on 350 suburban acres in the Town of West Seneca, Erie County. West Seneca is approximately 13 miles south-west of Buffalo and easily accessible from I-90. The landscape is of varied terrain, with both wooded and open areas and small elevations, which has been well maintained by the state. The north perimeter of the property abuts Cazenovia Creek. Approximately 100 acres of this boundary land was transferred to the state Department of Environmental Conservation and will remain forever wild.
