Darren Cotten graduated with a Masters in Urban Planning last week from the University at Buffalo. He sent me his thesis project earlier today: Heritage Tourism: In a Post-Industrial City (PDF). Darren's work speaks directly to the potential reuse of the Bethlehem Steel North Office building. Take a few moments to download, read and learn more about the value of this truly unique building that may be days away from the landfill.
I've been working with Darren for the past few months on the City's near East Side. He's filed a Homesteading application with the City's Division of Real Estate and intends to make a City-owned residential property, one that was slated for demolition last November, his home. Darren is also the founder of the University Heights Tool Library.
