Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) Board of Directors met today and approved several items that will advance projects on Buffalo’s waterfront.  The board approved the design of both Heritage Point on the South Aud Block and the Buffalo Heritage Carousel near the Central Wharf at Canalside, paving the way for the projects to move forward.  The board also authorized ECHDC to grant a utility easement on the Outer Harbor to National Grid and designated additional Canalside Design Committee members. “The items approved by the ECHDC Board today ensure that our waterfront has cohesive and visually engaging spaces for the public’s enjoyment,” said ECHDC Chairman Robert Gioia.  “As the waterfront grows—both in its appeal and with physical projects—it is important that we take the time to create a timeless neighborhood and spaces that continue to attract visitors to the area.” The design approved by the ECHDC Board for Heritage Point, a $30 million private development project on the South Aud Block, includes two mixed-use buildings. The two buildings (totaling approximately 103,000 square feet) will be separated by a public walkway that follows a portion of the former Prime Slip, which would be inclined to provide an accessible path to the towpath for the public.  The proposed buildings will be constructed to the parcel lot lines, creating uniquely-shaped buildings and the exterior building materials will be predominantly stone and brick masonry. The buildings will include a mix of residential, office and a restaurant.  The project, to be developed by Sinatra & Company, has been formally reviewed by the Canalside Design Committee to determine its consistency with the Canalside Design Guidelines.  Renderings and construction drawings of the project are here. The Board also approved the design for the approximately 6,000 square foot Roundhouse building that will house the Buffalo Heritage Carousel.  The structure shape is designed as an octagon with a two-step roof that includes a clerestory and is topped with a glazed cupola.  The eight sides of the octagon will be formed by heavy timber columns and spanned by a glazed storefront system.  The metal panel roof will also have an integrated solar panel to assist in the operation of the carousel.  The carousel will be centered within the structure.  The $4 million project has been formally reviewed by the Canalside Design Committee to determine its consistency with the Canalside Design Guidelines.  Renderings and construction drawings of the project are here. The board also designated additional Canalside Design Committee members. The Canalside Design Guidelines were prepared in July 2009, revised in March 2010 and apply to all development parcels within Canalside.  Its goals are to provide high quality, attractive and active spaces that employ contemporary techniques but connect to the unique history of the site and Buffalo as a whole.  The purpose of the committee, which currently consists of Rishawn Sonubi, Audrey Ross Sanders and Mark Mistretta, is to assist ECHDC with the development, adoption and implementation of the guidelines.  New members designated by the board today include Elaine Chow, an adjunct professor within the School of Architecture & Planning at the State University of New York at Buffalo who also has a private practice, and Deborah Pease, who has a private practice that provides both design and construction management services.  The board also designated two alternates to the Canalside Design Review Committee: Michael Lennon and Seth Amman. Lastly, the ECHDC Board approved a measure that will allow ECHDC to grant a utility easement on the Outer Harbor to National Grid.  In order to provide electrical service to recent projects on the Outer Harbor, including a bike park and event lawn, the utility easement will permit extension of electrical service from Fuhrmann Boulevard to locations at Lakeside Complex.  The proposed easement, which is 20 feet wide, would prohibit building construction on the section and grants National Grid the right to access the property to inspect, maintain and repair the electric cabling as necessary.  The transfer will not provide any monetary compensation to ECHDC.  About Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation The ECHDC is governed by a nine-member board consisting of seven voting directors and two non-voting, ex-officio directors.

Expansion Will Allow Market to Provide Fresh Foods in a Federally Recognized "Food Desert" Funding Comes from Buffalo's East Side Corridor Economic Development Fund Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the groundbreaking for Mandela Market's expansion project on the East Side of Buffalo. The $145,000 expansion on East Ferry Street will allow for an increase in fresh and prepared food options in a federally recognized "food desert" where current options are not accessible for the neighborhood. The market will receive funding from the state's East Side Corridor Economic Development Fund. The project is expected to be complete in Spring of 2020. "New York State is laser focused on growing Buffalo's unprecedented momentum, and our investments in the four main north-south commercial corridors has sparked the revitalization of Buffalo's East Side," Governor Cuomo said. "Access to fresh, quality food options is critical to the growth and prosperity of a community, and the Mandela Market expansion will address the unique circumstances experienced within the East Side, leading to a stronger, thriving Buffalo for generations to come." "Ahmed Saleh and all immigrants who call Buffalo home are making our community stronger. We are proud to support projects like the expansion of the Mandela Market and the continuing revitalization of Buffalo's East side," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, who spoke at today's event. "Lack of access to fresh food is a social injustice, and here in New York we are focused on alleviating food insecurity. The expanded Mandela Market will make it easier for Buffalo residents to access fresh fruits and vegetables - helping to ensure all families can put good food on the table."
