Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the 28th proposal of his 2020 State of the State agenda - transforming Buffalo's North Aud Block at Canalside based on community and stakeholder input. The concept would incorporate elements of the district's historic character, while creating a vibrant mix of residences, restaurants and shops, as well as added parking. The plan is based on an interpretation of the historic street pattern that once extended through the block from the Erie Canal. The "streets" will be pedestrian paths and include an open piazza. In August 2018, Governor Cuomo announced $10 million in funding to transform the North Aud Block, the State's final remaining parcel to be developed at Canalside.
