I'm not too keen on the "sand castle" looks of that tower, but if the end-game is to have a waterfront littered with those or with the Asian-esque towers in Toronto, I'll take these - it's much more "open" and "organic" looking or something.

A 15 or 20 story tower in that spot just might fill that void.:yes Sounds like there's interest in making that happen.

And now maybe a 22 story hotel on a Seneca Indian casino complex?



Don't mean to hi-jack this thread, but thought I'd throw that new development in there.

You didn't hi-jack a thing. There was a hunch that there was interest in placing a 20 story tower in that spot, you provided the eveidence. Like Miller Lite, GOOD CALL!

I went to bed shortly after halftime, so as far as I'm concerned, they won.

I live barely a quarter mile from the stadium grounds, so I actually could tell what was going on even with the TV muted. Kinda cool, except for the constant buzzing of the airplane overhead. That was pretty annoying. Had never been so close to a MNF game though, so it was certainly different. The atmosphere was so different from a regular game, it was actually palpable. It's a shame Dick Mauron had to try to give the game away. Oh well, it doesn't really bother me too much; I'm not half the fan I used to be, of the game in general - just don't find it as entertaining anymore. I'm more of a hockey fan.

Another thing... It is nice to see our sister city having some good leaders... In Rochester it seems like they have there head up there arse pretty deep. It is extremly frustrating.


WNY OWN STATE!
I actually think that Kodak's troubles will be good for Rochester over the long-term. It never was healthy that so much of the city's economy depended on just one company. As you pointed out in an earlier post, Rochester is experiencing at least some job growth in spite of the layoffs by its major players. Most of that growth is among small and mid-size companies, at least a few of which are sure to grow into major employers at some point in the future.

Western NY will revive someday...at which point I can return from exile!

I know some of you think build anything and it will benefit Buffalo, but its short sighted. What advantages does Buffalo have aside from cheap housing?

What I like about Buffalo is that it looks like places did when I was growing up. The old look of its architecture is a big plus. There are so many old buildings that need fixing up and that could make excellent projects, why foul up one of the best skylines in the US?

First let me say that this tower will do nothing for Buffalo's skyline because it is more than 2 miles north of the downtown area. Second this great skyline you speak of has, in my opinion, has only a few good angles. Looking south, down main st. from an elevated position, or looking south, down Niagara st from street level. If you take the typical view from across the water the skyline looks horrible. HSBC over powers everything else and is off in the distance. In addition there are many gaps; broken tooth is a popular slimily. The view is very similar coming north on the 190, until you get very close to the downtown area.

While I agree that there is a fair amount of great buildings that need to be rehabbed our city as a whole and the downtown area in particular could stand to have some more mid/high-rise structures to fill in major gaps, mostly provided by surface parking lots.

Well the lawsuit is official, an official joke. First hearing is 24Nov. From what i've read, a rational judge will throw that crap out the window and spit on it while is on the way down.

Nov24th is a Saturday. Could they be attempting to slip one in here? You sure that date is right? If so, I don't like how this is going down, and the Holiday too! Seems Shisty!

^^ The origional video (I didnt like this sped-up one) should be played as a commercial in southern cities where the other half of Buffalo lives. If that doesnt bring people back home I dont know what will.
