Recently posted in The Atlantic Cities, is a feature outlining a number of hockey towns that got busy announcing development projects, despite the fact that there has been no hockey season until now. The article leads off with a look at Buffalo’s Harbor Center, showcasing a rendering of the Webster Block, and then touches on the addition of streetscape improvements along Perry Street – long overdue aesthetic and pedestrian improvements surrounding the arena.
From The Atlantic Cities:
The Sabres are also partnering with other businesses in the neighborhood to revitalize Perry Street, which abuts First Niagara Center and the new Buffalo Creek Casino. Though the redesign won’t take care of the stretch of undeveloped parcels that serve as surface lots, it proposes a more stylized streetscape that aims to attract pedestrians and bicyclists. The hope is that it will encourage development along the city’s Inner Harbor and Cobblestone districts. Work on the project could begin this year.
Other cities featured in the article are: Detroit, Edmonton, Montreal, New York, Phoenix and Pittsburgh.
