This is cool... and this SatOne dude totally looks like that actor/comedian David Cross.

And a great amenity to complement the development going on down on the Bayfront. This area has changed soooo much since I was a kid, and now it's really starting to get some momentum, with the Harborplace development (hotel going up in left background is first component, with office, residential, restaurant, 2nd hotel).


Artist SatOne completes mural at Erie’s Dobbins Landing

https://www.goerie.com/news/20190814...obbins-landing





Internationally known artist Rafael Gerlach, known as SatOne, adds to views from the Bicentennial Tower with his mural covering the observation deck.

Visitors to the top of Erie’s Bicentennial Tower will now see more waves when they look down — nearly 140-feet — at Dobbins Landing. In addition to the waters of Presque Isle Bay, spectators will see waves of bold color painted by artist Rafael Gerlach on the second-floor observation deck.

The as-yet-untitled mural, covering the 12,000-square-foot deck and best viewed from the tower, is a collaboration between Erie Arts & Culture and the Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority.

This is really big news for Erie. Significant federal medical research dollars will make their way into Erie... with employment projected at 200. But more importantly, this puts Erie on the global map as a major center of medical research/biomedical science.

UPMC Magee-Womens Research Institute (UPMC-MWRI) to establish its first research facility outside of Pittsburgh.

To initially be housed at the existing Magee-Womens UPMC-Hamot hospital in downtown Erie, with a new freestanding building to built in the future.

An affiliated biomedical research lab will be established at Penn State-Behrend (which will also add biochemistry and biomedical engineering programs) in conjunction with their research partnership.


$26 million medical research facility coming to Erie

- In short, this expansion of the nation’s largest women’s health institute is expected to improve the health of women in the region over time, create jobs paying an average of $70,000 a year, produce spinoff benefits as the result of a partnership with Behrend and begin funneling millions of dollars in research money to Erie each year.

This will be the 3rd mural created by a prominent international artist in downtown Erie in the past 2 months. Cool stuff.

This is GREAT news. I'm hoping more info comes out about this soon... and that this parcel will be put to much better, more appropriate use than a 1970s drive-thru fast food joint.

Downtown Erie McDonald’s to close

https://www.goerie.com/news/20191008...nalds-to-close

A ULI panel of experts recommends a complete development of the southern and western sides of the block. Recent planning studies provided by the ULI to the city recommend a new building with 140 dwelling units on the block. They are calling for new urban-stacked townhouses to be built, with rooftop terraces.
