Press Pass: Exploring expansion of the Convention Center
A recent study offered two options for the future of the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center: the razing of the current facility with new construction on the current site, or a space near KeyBank Center. Jim Fink of Business First has been looking at an option offered by Mark Croce, owner of Statler City, which calls for expansion of the Convention Center. An additional floor would be added and attached across Franklin Street into Statler City. While the proposal isn't perfect, Fink points out how it would avoid the costly expense of land acquisition associated with the other plans.
