HANSA is a homegrown flexible office space center created by Uniland Development Company, themselves innovators and leaders in Buffalo’s commercial real estate development scene since 1974. HANSA (pronounced hähn-sä), is Latin for guild, meaning people uniting for a common purpose, and was inspired by our vision to build “An Elevated Office Experience” in Buffalo, NY.
HANSA opened on August 31st, 2020 at 505 Ellicott St. as a two-story, 32,000 square foot state-of-the-art coworking facility in the Central Business District of Buffalo, NY. Our business center provides open coworking, dedicated desks, private offices, and meeting rooms and event space for as few as 1 and as many as 46 individuals, all in a collaborative and supportive community of professionals who make productivity, creativity, learning and networking part of their work-life integration.
