Amy Nagy

Amy Nagy is a Senior Project Manager for Vita Nuova.

She is keenly focused on the intersection of real estate, economic development, and energy transition. She has spent over 20 years working within the private development community and understands the requirements to attract capital to a project. She has worked on various site reuse projects, including revitalizing brownfields; redeveloping coal plants, large petrochemical facilities, and new hydrogen fueling for the transportation industry; and preserving and restoring historically significant sites.

She is adept at identifying and selecting sites, zoning and infrastructure analysis, and financial feasibility, with specialized expertise in applying tax credits and other financial incentives to redevelopment projects. In her work in a private capacity, Ms. Nagy has often served as an intermediary to investors, lenders, public agencies, and community stakeholders. This role has allowed her to develop a sense of potential underlying obstacles to a project and how to overcome them as early as possible. Her most notable projects include transforming a former brewery into luxury apartments, the adaptive reuse of a former hospital campus, and acquiring the former ‘Aud’ stadium site in Buffalo’s Canalside district for redevelopment.

Ms. Nagy also serves the University of Buffalo community as an adjunct professor teaching Market Study and Feasibility in its Commercial Real Estate Development program.
