OK, I'm going to model this thing for you guys, the renderings so far are doing it no justice. In fact I think they make it look bad.

They might be even farther along by now. The canvasing for the project is somewhat international. Hey, Is someone Drawing this tower up for the Diagrams section? Anyone requested it yet?

Wow, this is great news for Buffalo if it happens. I'm surprised I didn't see this thread earlier.

Sure it will happen Pal, things are well under way. A great marketing team for a great project. Hard to believe it's happening in B-lo, but it is. A few more residential Highrises, one 20 stories, tons of Lofts being planned or underconstruction downtown, new leadership, yep, things are finally looking up. WAY UP!

This building would look great among the old brick buildings there, and would symbolise that this city has turned a corner. Maybe one day I can afford to live there. Cheektowaga is nice, but I would never turn down an opportunity to have one of those condos. At least I will be able to see it everyday on my commute down the 90 to UB north campus, assuming it is finished by 2010.

Well, they are off to a good start. I'd say 2010 we top things off.

Well, with Sen. Johnson apparently in critical condition, Looks like those RedNecks will be able to make trouble again. Anyway, like Bank said, looking forward to that rendering.

Saw Mayor Brown on CNN's Lou Dobbs Special last week, He said, "Every Proposel on the table MUST become reality, We have no choice". I like the sound of that. I'm thinking THIS project is tops on that list.
