More from the Medical Campus: rooms with a view

The buildings rising from the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus have been touted for bringing more jobs downtown and rapidly changing the neighborhood.

But there's another bonus: the views from the windows of the new buildings under construction or recently built.

If you will work in or take classes in the University at Buffalo's new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, you are in for amazing sights. The John R. Oishei Children's Hospital and the Gates Vascular Institute also offer sweeping views.

At UB's new medical school building, scheduled to open later this year, views stretch to the downtown skyline and beyond to Lake Erie. The eight-story building's glass atrium overlooks a long stretch of Allen Street.

And views from a sixth-floor office suite show the city's church steeples, rooftops and architecture, as well as the core of downtown, including the tops of prominent buildings such as City Hall, One Seneca Tower and the Electric Tower, among many other local landmarks.

Then there's the view of Lake Erie that seems to stretch forever in the distance.

Views from the glass walls at Gates Vascular Institute on the campus also are impressive – particularly northward – as well as from the new John R. Oishei Children's Hospital scheduled to open in November.

Buffalo General Medical Center also lends itself to excellent vantage points with some offices overlooking downtown architecture, the Niagara River, Lake Erie and City Hall.
