Developer Gerry Buchheit has resurrected the Queen City Landing project - with a number of revisions.  According to Business First, the project cost has increased to $100 million - while the number of stories has been reduced from 23 to 20.  There will be 206 apartments and condominiums.  Plans call for two restaurants - and a separate parking garage idea has been replaced by an enclosed, 370-car ramp that will occupy floors two through five.  Pending approvals, Buchheit hopes to start construction next spring with a target completion in 2021.

The Foundry, an educational makerspace and business incubator located on Buffalo's east side, has completed its upstairs renovation.  The Foundry is at 298 Northampton Street in Buffalo.

WNY United Against Drug & Alcohol Abuse, Inc. has received a $100,000 grant from the AmerisourceBergen Foundation.  The grant will enable WNY United to offer an online prescription drug safety course to high schools in communities across Western New York.

E & W G Foundation, a subsidiary of the East Hill Foundation, has announced a $500,000 commitment to support construction for the recuperative care unit in the new Buffalo City Mission Community Center at 100 East Tupper Street.  The new unit will be housed on the second floor of the new Community Center.
