Can Silo City Save Buffalo?
Buffalo’s own Silo City was featured in Fast Company yesterday. The headline reads, Can These Eerie, Abandoned Grain Silos Help Save Buffalo? I’ll tell you what can help save Buffalo (along with those silos), the continued discussion of Buffalo’s renaissance on national platforms like Fast Company. This piece featuring our historic silos dives into the possibilities Rick Smith envisions for his three silos.
Here’s a snippet of what Fast Company is saying about the emerging city within our city:
Just south of downtown Buffalo, near the city’s First Ward, lies an area of abandoned grain elevators known as Silo City. They sit on the waterfront of Lake Erie like squat memories of Buffalo’s successful past. The silos are in a state of decay–but could they hold the keys to a more prosperous future for the city?
Join this conversation, as well as any others you come across about the rejuvenation of Buffalo. Let’s get Buffalonians weighing in and sharing these conversations. Please leave your comments below.
