Saturday Tour Pix...

Was joined by über flickr photographer Jim Lindley on Saturday morning for the weekly Artspace Backyard neighborhood tour. Check out some of Jim's shots from the tour...here.

While dropping off a copy of the Buffalo News front page article to a friend on Coe Place - Success in Pittsburgh puts Buffalo in Picture - we narrowly missed getting hit by some falling bricks here at 1217 Main Street - Artspace building, that I wrote about earlier in the week - right here.

It's gotten really hard negotiating the sidewalks around the Artspace project recently as this sign will attest... As fixBuffalo readers know and understand, I'm a huge Artspace fan - infact on Friday evening while attending an opening at Keepa3 around the corner on Barker Street, I held an impromptu tour of the neighborhood which I often do - yet lately things seem to be slipping away from the good management residents in the neighborhood have come to expect from construction here at Artspace.

Falling bricks and clogged sidewalks...wouldn't happen on Elmwood Avenue, would it?

- C'est la vie...

At least if yopu get hit in the head it will take your mind off the snow ice and cold.

Falling bricks... ouch. But, that could explain how they ended up with the stop-work notice.

Savarino is building the Seneca's temporary Casino

Savarino is quickly developing a shitty reputation around town. They completely botched the Elmwood hotel, supposedly did a crappy job on the EV Charter school, quickly put up a nasty brick bunker on Michigan near the 33, and now this?

And oh yeah, fat chance those "Cobblestone Lofts" condos will ever get built. Hert and Atak have done more work on that building than they have.

Savarino seems like a developer who will only build things completely funded with public $$$, in other words....zero risk.
