A few weeks ago I presented Midtown - Poised for Renaissance
by Chris Hawley in Part III
of my on-going series about Artspace and the emerging area around Main Street that we now call Midtown.
While Chris Hawley has been working on the residential plan for the Artspace Impact Area, Stevan Stipanovich has just completed his planning document for commercial development along this stretch of Main Street.
Both Chris and Stevan got huge kudos earlier this week from the City's top planner Tim Wannamaker while we all attended a meeting in support of preserving and renovating the Hamilton Ward House
on Coe Place.Attention Buffalo Control Board members and Byron Brown
- get Chris and Stevan a job! Net gain for Buffalo will like totally exceed their salary! They did this exemplary urban planning work as interns!
There is a quality even meaner than outright ugliness or disorder, and this meaner quality is the dishonest mask
of pretended order, achieved by ignoring or suppressing the real order that is struggling to exist and to be served.

The views expressed here are mine and shouldn't be confused with the mission and statements made by others.
