Buffalo economic development subject of upbeat article in NYTimes

Canalside tango

An article in the July 31, 2013 Real Estate Section of the NYTimes describes Buffalo’s construction boom, particularly on the Buffalo-Niagara Medical Campus.  Over $750 million in investment and over 1.3 million square feet of building projects are described in glowing terms as the author opines “It has been a long time since people felt anything about Buffalo’s downtown other than dismay.”  In an interesting coincidence, the lead picture features a tango dance group to which our own Sharon Hilts belongs.  Read the article here.
