Artspace - December 2006 Update

The image “http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y192/fixbuffalo/snip2.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Did a walk around the Artspace site on Main Street Sunday afternoon with a few local artists. Dropped the camera - it's now dead - more pictures will have to wait. So I found this stock photo that I received last year, for now - sorry. Really lots of progress. Come on over and check things out...especially the view from the backside along Coe Place.
New Neighbors...
The folks from Artspace have tweeked their website about Buffalo, abit and have started to reveal some additional information about the project. Artspace Buffalo - now has some links to floor plans and a mildly confusing link to income restrictions and rental information. They have four construction photos - just two interior shots. From the new information, seems like Artspace will start making decisions on who's renting space in late Spring, 2007.

For additional construction photos, see my flickr archive.

The updated website lists 36 spots with various floor plans, including these:
FP-Unit C FP-Unit A 2 BDRM 1 BDRM

I truly believe that this building is going to become the primary catalyst in urban adaptive reuse for the City of Buffalo that may even surpass the accomplished projects of Rocco Termini.

The location and history of the building, albeit faded history, will only enhance the architectural resurrection of this building and surrounding area.

Also, the artistic community persona, that will take-up residency in this building, will resonate throughout the entire neighborhood.

Eventually, a balance of alternative lifestyles and gentrification, though frowned upon, will blend into the existing fabric of the community and enhance the melting pot of this section of the city.

True, it may only be Coe Place that benefits from this renovation project but I believe that if these small accomplishments continue, eventually, the perimeters of these project will begin to touch one another creating a whole.
