I recently invited Paul Ciminelli (Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation) to sit down at our offices to conduct a podcast, so that we could discuss a number of issues related to development in Buffalo. Over the past year, Paul has repeatedly put a bug in my ear that BR should be getting on the podcast bandwagon. I finally got my act together, along with a microphone.
During the interview, we discussed numerous pertinent issues facing Buffalo’ s development scene, including preservation, the mega-region, parking lots, walkability, weather, and condos. Paul was nice enough to give me some insight into his thought processes when it comes to rebuilding Buffalo. This is what he had to say:
- 00:34 Biggest development success story
- 01:53 A development that got away
- 02:32 Paul’s takeaway from traveling
- 03:40 Preservation
- 5:10 Parking lots
- 6:56 Seneca One
- 9:10 Development opportunities
- 9:55 Condos?
- 11:28 Weather
- 12:31 Mega-region
- 14:42 Bike-ped
- 16:30 Zinger question
