tower is still on

Construction date moved from 2009 to 2008 on skycraperpage.

BSC might put their Buffalo office in the tower when built.

wonderful news, I always new it would get built and now Im thrilled that the date has been moved up to next year. Im guessing he is going to have alot of demand once the Federal Court Building is built.

Please add a few floors though and make it taller than Syracuse! We (Buffalo) deserve to have the tallest building in upstate.

oh and here is my message to the [email protected], the city could use another building of the same size on the eastside....then when your done rebuild the Larkin Administration Building.

Mr Giggles reminds me...of just how much Boston and Buffalo have in common.....and his icon is another reminder of how similar the Buffalo City Center is to the most prominent skyscraper in Boston (John Hancock Center)

Of all the cities in the US I think Boston is really the city that Buffalo most needs to emulate

I'm going to be sitting down with the guys at Harris Beach, who handle Issa's account, and hopefully discussing the tower with them. News soon

Thats my sentiments. Love the new tower but it exposes the rest of the downtown. No disrespect but Buffalo might be better off imploding and starting from scratch. Upgrading is needed here, blow up those old buildings and start building new modern towers.

The old buildings are to architecturally unique that it would be an insult to the companies who built them.

They also give Buffalo its "charm"lol

There are many surface lots available though. Right now though, Buffalo's thing is rehabbing buildings and adding some new ones here and there.

Actually, I think the skyline would look great without the HSBC. Big building or not, it is just flat out ugly.

I find skylines with a mix of older styles and newer ones to look the best - New York and Chicago have this mix, and it makes them some of the best skylines in the world. Would we suggest that New York tear down the Chrysler Building or Empire State Building? Granted, there's some buildings Buffalo could do without, but our older high rises should be kept as they really enhance the skyline. i couldn't imagine Buffalo without the City Hall, for example.

I would have less of a problem with the HSBC building if it wasnt built directly over Main Street and blocking the waterfront from all the main street buildings.

If you're driving downtown, facing it, it looks good. Main Street has a really nice set of streetwalls on some blocks. But facing the sides...it's disgusting

The project is dead - just look for Issa to find an excuse to bow out and save face. He'll be gone by June. There are simply no tenants for the building.

He'll probably negotiate and if that fails, fire all them and find new workers.

Not all workers are unionized or belong to that union.

Why do you keep coming here and posting this over and over? We get it. You think the project's dead. If you don't have anything else to say, don't bother posting.
