Kaleida Health's board of directors has selected a proposed veterinary school to be developed at the former Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital.

Kaleida made the announcement Tuesday afternoon.  The $65 million plan proposed by local developer Chason Affinity was chosen over a proposal for a mixed use complex from Uniland Development that including a hotel and residential, office, and retail space.


Proposed designs for a brand new Women and Children's Hospital were unveiled this morning during a meeting of Buffalo's Planning Board. 

The hospital plans to relocate the entire facility to the corner of Ellicott and High streets in the Medical Corridor.  Kaleida Health and hospital leaders say the 12-story, state-of-the art facility would be designed to provide better patient care and attract new doctors.

Two very different proposals for the future of the Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital site were presented Wednesday night, one a mix of boutique hotel, apartments and retail, while the other proposes a new veterinary medicine school.

The hospital is now closed, leaving behind a century of building space and a parking ramp which is the only part of the facility still in use.

The finalists in a long process to find potential developers presented their plans to a packed house in the Burchfield Penney Art Center.
