Who We Are

Buckingham Properties is a real estate developer and property management company located in Rochester, New York. Our diverse portfolio includes office, industrial, retail, and residential properties totaling ten million square feet, as well as 200+ acres of development land. As a leading real estate developer, Buckingham has completed several notable projects in the Greater Rochester region, including Tower280 at MidtownEdge of the Wedge, and Buckingham Commons.

Buckingham Properties was co-founded in 1970 by Larry Glazer and Harold Samloff. Larry was a visionary who dared to venture where other real estate developers wouldn’t go – taking buildings apart, putting them back together – breathing new life into our city. Larry’s legacy lives on through his family and the Buckingham Team, who share his passion and commitment to the Rochester community.

The Buckingham Way

Real Estate ... Reimagined.

At Buckingham, our goal is to create places within our community for people, businesses, and relationships to thrive. Our culture highlights three attributes: Accessibility, Innovation, and Community Pride. We call the synergy of these qualities "The Buckingham Way," which defines our values as a leading real estate developer and property manager.

Accessibility

When you need us, we’ll be there. Buckingham employees are on-site every day interacting with our tenants, so you’ll always have a face to a name. We take the time to understand your needs so that our response is not only timely, but thorough and accurate.

Innovation

Buckingham has a long history of progressive thinking. Whether working with a tenant to make a partnership successful or redeveloping a property into something new, our culture embraces creativity, new ideas, and the pursuit of new opportunities.

Community Pride

We are proud to be making a difference in our community – one tenant – one property – or one project at a time. At Buckingham, we believe in giving our time, knowledge, and energy to make Rochester a vibrant city that we are proud to call home.
