Keith Schneider of The New York Times posted an inspiring piece yesterday titled, “Once Just a Punch Line, Buffalo Fights Back,” which documents the city’s recent growth and downtown resurgence. The story identifies the development the downtown Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus as a vital force behind this resurgence, helping introduce new hotels, restaurants and commercial development in the city.
Cannon Design is proud to be part of this civic resurgence as our oldest office is based in the important and historical city. This excerpt from the NY Times piece identifies two of our projects as key players in this effort:
“In 2006, the campus’s first new building — the $24 million Hauptman-Woodward Research Institute for structural biology — was finished, with 73,000 square feet. Last year, three more projects were completed: a $291 million research and clinical care building that houses the Gates Vascular Institute and the State University of New York at Buffalo’s Clinical and Translational Research Center (475,000 square feet in 10 stories); the $64 million 300-bed HighPointe on Michigan skilled nursing center (202,000 square feet); and a $37 million, 2,000-space parking deck. “
The downtown medical corridor now employs more than 12,000 people and those who live in and around Buffalo are energized by their downtown. The article served as a tangible reminder that even when we are working on specific buildings and projects – we are always trying to create brighter futures. We are excited for Buffalo and every city in which we work and committed to helping them continue to grow stronger.
