The fate of the planned $120 million Elmwood Crossing reworking of the former Women and Children's Hospital campus went before the Buffalo Common Council's Legislation Committee Wednesday. After several speakers made their voices heard, the item was tabled so council members can study the plan.

Developer Carl Paladino says the Buffalo Bills should be playing their future football games in a domed stadium on a site immediately adjacent to KeyBank Center.

As Buffalo has developed in recent years, the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Seneca Street is starting to turn into the same business node many other areas of the city. Now, a very old building that has been standing empty for a long time at that corner is going to get a new life as a mix of office space and three floors of apartments.

Development projects in Buffalo have become increasingly noisy as they move through the city review process. On almost every project there is a group of opponents who point out the many Green Code exemptions being approved to allow a project to move forward. A charter school expansion in South Buffalo is now facing those complaints, plus concerns over a Native American burial ground.

Some time this summer, the parking lot at Elmwood Avenue and Bryant Street will start looking like a giant hole in the ground, as environmental cleanup and construction work starts on a major mixed-use building. It is the first sign of re-purposing Buffalo's old Women and Children's Hospital site.

In reporting the recent good news about the Buffalo economy, Jim Fink says he feels like a "broken record, but it's a good broken record." During his monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass, Fink notes the $75 million investment by Ellicott Development into its 500 Pearl project.

The winter hiatus is apparently over. The Elmwood Village development wars are reheating, this time over what to do with the former Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo.

For decades, Women and Children's Hospital was central to life in the Elmwood Village.  Though the massive structure currently sits vacant, the property still stands as a key part of the neighborhood's future. During his monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass, Jim Fink of Business First outlined developers' plans to transform the site into hundreds of residences.

When Peg Overdorf bought land along Ohio Street in 2006 for a park, there were a lot of people who thought she was crazy because everyone knew if Ohio Street was going anywhere, it was continuing downhill. However, public money has helped turn it around.
