Partnership asks for input for Downtown Development Report Card

The future of Downtown Buffalo looks bright. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have a long way to go to make Downtown the best place that it can be. If you were to grade the progress that Downtown Buffalo is making, what would you rate it? Yes, there are cranes in the sky, and Main Street is being dedicated to cars again, and the waterfront is being developed at record pace… is it all good? Is all right with the world? What are you noticing taking place, or not taking place?

The Partnership is asking the community to come listen to current place-making efforts and the economic drivers that are finally getting the ball rolling.

Join real estate experts, urban designers, and John Norquist, CEO of the Congress for New Urbanism (CNU) for an event that is intended to raise a glass to raised cranes. It’s a “Cheers to Downtown Development”, but in the end, how full are the glasses that are being passed around?

“Cheers to Downtown Development” raises a glass to raised cranes…

Who: Buffalo Niagara Partnership
Real estate experts
Urban designers
John Norquist, CEO of the Congress for New Urbanism (CNU)

& you.

Where: Shea’s Smith Theater
658 Main Street
Buffalo, NY 14202

When: Today – April 15, 2014 | 3:30-4:30 pm

What: A safe, accessible and popular neighborhood where we can “live, work and play” is once again becoming a reality for downtown Buffalo! But there is more than needs to be done to improve the health and landscape of the downtown area. Discussion will include Mayor Brown’s Buffalo Building Reuse Project and public/private commitments that have been made to downtown development.
