Nov. 24, 1999: Building expected in six months for Aud transportation terminal

With the selection of a designer for the project, building was expected to begin sometime in 2000 for a $9.1 million transportation terminal to be built in the vestibule of Memorial Auditorium.

By the end of 2000, the price tag for the project had jumped to at least $20 million. While politicians promised the project was on track, it wound up being shelved.

"This sends a very strong signal we're no longer talking about concepts," Mayor Masiello said. "We're going to start delivering on what we're talking about for the Buffalo Inner Harbor."

Duchscherer Oberst Design, a Buffalo engineering and design firm, was selected for the project. The "Buffalo Intermodal Transportation Center" is expected to become the new Amtrak station for downtown as well as a hub for light rail and bus service. The terminal is scheduled for completion by the summer of 2002.
