this will provide a great balance for the skyline. I like this town and how it is designed. Good news!

It's my understanding that the Seneca Gaming Corporation is negotiating to take a big chunk of space in th Issa Tower for their corporate HQ. Completely non-sovereign like their golf course in Lewiston, They are talking about enough space for about 500 workers.

If you notice you will see that their recently released updated Casino plans no longer include the gaming Corp HQ's. My friend did not say how much space they were looking at but enough to hold 'up to' 500 would seem to be pretty significant. I am really starting to believe in this project.

Ugh has anyone seen those renders? sickening. Hopefully businesses looking to locate downtown may have an interest in his tower.

the dulski is just about to get started, and the federal courthouse is now in full swing, so thats probably what they're for. as for the tower, its been pretty hush hush around town, which is probably for the better

I think Hilton is going to be the hotel. It seems the right place. I can see it now, "The Hilton at Buffalo City Tower."

I understand the one of the City's largest law firms is also interested in moving there as they have had nothing but hassles in getting their own offices rehabbed.

The only law firm I can think of that fits your criteria is Hodgson Russ, but I cannot see them abandoning the renovation of the Guaranty Building. Perhaps you are thinking of a different firm - if so, who?

Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC?

Harris Beach PLLC?

They are large, so I have been told.

I would guess Hodgson Russ (Buffalo's largest, ~400 emp., #184 in the US), but I would think they're pretty entrenched with their investment in the Guaranty Building. Not to mention being fairly well completed.

I'll stomach Paul William Beltz if they demolish that ugly little travesty of a shoebox stuck between the Guaranty and Verizon buildings. I hesitate to say it (be careful what you wish for), but a surface lot would be more attractive.

Also among the biggies are Damon & Morey (sp?), and Phillips Lytle (~320 emp., #242 in the US).

That's the one I have heard, they are hoping to sell the Guaranty for a profit and make a move. They are not too thrilled with the ownership responsibilities plus they are having trouble configuring the space to fit all of their workers in the building efficiently. Their dispute with the Federal Government hasn't helped the situation either.
