Demo of the Old Aud Expected in October

By Eileen Buckley


Buffalo, NY – Demolition of the former Memorial Auditorium in downtown Buffalo is expected to begin by early October. That is the word from leaders of the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation. This paves the way for Bass Pro construction to begin.

Asbestos remediation at the old Aud and Donovan State Office of Building in downtown Buffalo is on schedule. A project manager for the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation updated board members Tuesday.

The current work is in preparation for actual demolition of both sites. Remediation work at the Aud is 70% complete and 40% at the Donovan building. Harbor Development Corporation Chairman Jordan Levy says everything is on track.
