There is no way they will abandon that project. Years of restoration, the money spent, it makes no sense to me.

Rumour has it that the unknown building of the unknown company will be sold to Issa and fixed up into a mix use in order for them to move in to city tower. The old switch r' roo.

Most likely would happen then. I mean, you are basically paying the money for transitioning from the old office in to the new. The rest would be, or mostly be covered by the switch r'oo

Makes perfect sense to me. They could probably make a little return on their investment, not to mention market themselves in a shiny new tower that everyone's got their eyes on.

Plus they are a very civic minded group and perhaps realize what a boost the Issa Tower would be to the collective Buffalo psyche. After all that was one of their stated reasons for buying the Guaranty in the first place. Also, I have heard that their growth will make the Guaranty too small to put all of their employees under one roof which is something that they highly desire.

They are on a bit of a hiring spree from what I've seen. They actually offered my girlfriend a job there but she declined it on account of signing a 3 year contract and not being able to see it beforehand... Yeah, some people in Buffalo actually decline jobs.

I think the Hotel plus the original announcement that Cannon Design was taking space in the building give them the 33% - it was today's Buffalo News. From what I have heard they have had abolutely no luck in trying to interest Toronto or NYC companies to lease space in the building. I have been told that some of the rebuffs were borderline rude.

I really like it because, just like with the Freedom Tower u/c here, you can see the massive steel beams in the base and the color is great too.

It must be the tallest in NY outside of NYC! I love it a whole lot.

I love the contrast of the old and the modern in the skyline.

I have been told that have officially reached 5%.

Also, on SSP, the chart changed from 2009 to 2008, so that could be more evidence.

This all could be a lie that I was told, but, I don't think so.
