A "Softer" Color Scheme for Hotel Facade on Waterfront

The Planning Board of Buffalo has urged the developers of a new hotel on the waterfront to make design changes so that it looks less "bunkerlike".

"Planners on Tuesday told James W. Pitts that the Erie Basin Wingate Inn needs a "softer" color scheme to make it more compatible with the downtown shoreline.

Some Planning Board members praised many aspects of the $11 million project, saying its proposed red brick facade is one of the few remaining concerns.

Frank Lysiak, a member of the Waterfront Village Advisory Council, submitted a two-page critique of the project to the Planning Board on Tuesday. Even though developers have revised their original blueprints, Lysiak said shoreline residents still view the design as more suitable for a suburban or highway setting than for a "precious piece of property.""

Softer colors are very nice
