Tape cutting: A long building in a canal canal


0

Earlier today, the ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the Longshed building in Canalside. Work on the 4,000-square-foot structure has been completed, with one day building a replica of Governor David Clinton’s 73 ′ ′ boat that will house the Erie Canal to attend the water ceremony.

This is another significant development for Canalside, at the Slip Commercial in front of the Maritime Museum. Longshed helps to tell the story of the Erie Canal and the coming of age of Buffalo as a powerful industrial city.

The Erie Canal – a 363-mile waterway that connects Buffalo with the Hudson River – will celebrate its second anniversary in 2025. At that time, Longsheed will serve as the venue for the celebration, while the boat will be closed. recorded in the Commercial Slip (upon completion), which will be transformed into an interactive museum, open to the public for a range of events and activities.

Having a public resource, such as a venue, allows a number of events and celebrations to take place. In addition, while the construction of the package ships is underway, a number of training components are available for the community. This facility will become a museum and an ever-changing location that will help people understand the intricacies of shipbuilding while getting acquainted with the history of the coast.

This effort is impossible with the vision and tenacity of John Montague of the Buffalo Naval Center (BMC), who is a staunch defender of Buffalo’s naval past, present and future. Significant funding from the New York Energy Authority (NYPA) has also helped complete the project, through a federal recovery settlement agreement, thanks in part to Congressman Brian Higgins.

Other contributors are included in the project Port Erie Development Corporation (ECHDC), with funding from private donors and supporters of BMC David and Joan Rogers and Assembly Sean Ryan.

Governor Lt. Katie Hochul was also for cutting the ribbon to show constant state-level support. The construction manager is Savarino Kos. The architect is HHL Architects.
