AFAIK it was never dead, just a lot of typical pessimism here.

They expect to have answers on these before the end of the year. If they are a go, "they will go to construction in the spring of 2009."
Good news.

Could that big tenant be the Senecas?

10 minutes from Niagara Falls and what 40 minutes from the reservation. Seems like it would be a good choice imo.

Not Senecas, and not a bank from what I hear. That narrows it, huh?

What's been the general reaction to the redesign? I thought the white glass in the first rendering was more unique.

From what I know, the project has been in hush hush mode for a while.

The Buffalo City Tower is the only proposed skyscraper in Buffalo that I know of. I don't know if the city's skyline world recieve an upgrade in the future. Buffalo may never revrse its population decline seeing as it has lost half its 1950 population.

There's a few other projects in the works that will change the skyline. The Seneca casino, which is currently under construction now, will feature a 22 story hotel, and the Gates Circle condo tower will be 23 stories. There's also rumors of another condo tower for the waterfront, but nothing official there.

To be fair, I wonder how many people in Beijing are even aware of any development going on in Buffalo?

Actually, the population is expected to bottom out in 2015-2020 with a population between 240000-260000. Around 2030 it is expected to be between 280000-320000.
