Redevelopment plans for a Scott Street building are becoming clearer. Ellicott Development is moving forward with plans to put a mix of uses into the Fairmont Creamery at 199 Scott Street. The eight-story building occupies a prominent site along the I-190 in the Cobblestone District. Ellicott Development has owned the 120,000 sq.ft. property since 2001 and is one of the larger completely vacant buildings downtown.
Buffalo's waterfront is buzzing with development and brimming with possibilities... CanalSide, Ship Canal Commons, Elevator Alley, the Outer Harbor. But the entire area has long suffered from a lack of access. Whether the Skyway stays or goes, it will never be an optimal solution for connecting all these sites that have so much potential. Many are even convinced that Route 5 and the Skyway do more to separate Buffalo from its waterfront than it does to provide access. Automobiles have to follow odd routes, while pedestrians and
Who knows your parting wish?
If you died at this very moment, are you certain that your loved ones could confidently follow through with your preferred arrangements?
Death can be uncomfortable to think about, and even more uncomfortable to talk about. But if you're not making that final decision, then you're leaving it at the feet of those around you. Whether sudden or expected, familiar or foreign, dealing with death is something we all will face.
The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is challenging employers to grow our regional economy by buying local in 2013.
Buffalo Niagara is home to countless employers that provide first-rate products and services, offering a shorter supply chain and proximity to after-purchase services. In 2011, our region spent more than $68 billion on imports.

Since 1970, the Buffalo-Niagara region has lost more than 1,250 working farms, and nearly 160 square miles of farmland - an area four times the size of the City of Buffalo and down by roughly a third from what we had 40 years ago.
Why is the loss of farms and farmland a concern for regional sustainability? Because local farms make fresh and healthy foods more securely accessible to family tables in our cities and suburbs. Because locally produced food can have a dramatically smaller "carbon footprint"
The Canadian government has been selling seven local residences after deciding to close the local Canadian Consulate office last August. The largest, on Soldiers Circle, has a new owner. Stephen and Elizabeth Hays purchased a century-old, 5,000 sq.ft., two-story residence at 196 Soldiers Place for $750,000 today.
The new owners got quite a deal. The Canadian government paid $1.39 million for the property in 2009 and reportedly spent an additional $200,000 to upgrade the residence.
For anyone who is familiar with the park, over the years the grounds have fallen into complete
