Buffalo Rising published a piece giving CannonDesign kudos for being named one of the 10 most innovative architecture firms in the world by Fast Company. Below are a few excerpts from the article, and the full article can be viewed here.
“For years, the firm has been an integral component of the cosmetic makeup of this city. The name CannonDesign commands a certain respect from those in the field, as well as from the community in which it resides. CannonDesign’s forward thinking projects can be found all over the world. Projects locally include Canisius College Science Hall and Montante Cultural Center, as well as the Buffalo Sabres locker room, and Kaleida Health & Suny Buffalo, Gates Vascular Institute.”
Other local projects referenced in the article include:
- QueensLight, the redevelopment of the soon-to-be former Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, will serve as a transformational project featuring residential, educational, retail, hospitality and public spaces designed to “bring new energy” to the Elmwood Village.
- 201 Ellicott, which will establish a new, vibrant neighborhood in downtown Buffalo anchored around a mixed-use building including nearly 200 apartments and condo units, divided among a 12-story tower and a 4-story section that sits above ground floor retail spaces. The building will incorporate a strategic mix of live, work and play elements, including a new Orchard Fresh grocery store to address the lack of access to fresh food in downtown Buffalo.
