Downtown signs of progress

A couple of stories in the Business section today point to the subtle but sizable transformation going on in downtown Buffalo. The Buffalo Niagara Partnership released its annual wish list for the coming year, focusing on the expansion of the Buffalo Medical Campus. In particular, the Buffalo business group supports funding the new children's hospital, the UB Center for Excellence in Materials Informatics and continued support to keep Roswell Park Cancer Institute a premier facility.

In another story, Sen. Charles E. Schumer announced he is pushing to expand to major federal tax credits to help with the revitalization of historic buildings, including the Statler Towers and the H.H. Richardson complex.

If all these projects and changes come to pass, the transformation of downtown Buffalo will contiue to advance.
