Bold plan is perfect for One Seneca Tower

I would like to applaud Peter F. Hunt for advancing a bold and daring concept for Western New York: adaptive reuse. While there are many beautiful, historic buildings in the area crying out for retooling for modern occupancy, there is also a hungry white elephant sitting at the foot of Main Street. To fill its belly will require careful but visionary planning and the influx of capital other than taxpayers’ dollars.

Let’s hope the Buffalo business community will step up to the plate and hit a home run for downtown Buffalo. If not, we’ll just have to wait for the folks from Toronto, who know the value of a vibrant urban center, to do it for us.
