An article in the Buffalo News looks at the development
boom that is occurring downtown, thanks to the growth of the
Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, and quotes Robert Shibley, dean of
the School of Architecture and Planning. “This kind of
activity is a game-changer for the downtown and, as such, will be a
big lift for the region,” he said. The article notes that
construction on the medical campus includes the new UB School of
Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
