City Honors - March Update


According to Paul McDonnell - the archictect for the Board of Education and the City's liasion between the board and the Joint School Reconstruction Project - the cold and snow slowed construction here at City Honors for a short period this winter. Despite the weather, work is once again on schedule for the anticipated September 2010 completion. Here, the structural steel for the school's new natatorium is beginning to take shape.

The $1B Joint School Reconstruction Project is the largest construction project in the city's history. LPCiminelli is the project manager and their site - Buffalo Public Schools Program - provides additional information about the project's scope.

Arts and educational funding have been a vital link in this neighborhood's reemergence. The $40M for City Honors is part of the larger $100M strategic investment in Midtown. The other projects include Artspace, Performing Arts HS and the City's newest public library, the Merriweather - at the corner of East Utica and Jefferson.
