Seneca Nation Get Design Proposals - Friday 27th of January 2006

BUFFALO, New York – As reported by the Buffalo News: "The Seneca Nation of Indians and Seneca Gaming Corp. are poring over a stack of design proposals for the planned Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo.

"Most of the seven architectural firms which were asked to submit preliminary designs for the nation's Erie County gaming facility got their plans in by Friday's submission deadline, according to Seneca Gaming spokesman Phil Pantano.

"…Pantano did say the field of contenders includes at least one local architectural firm, which will compete against designers from around the U.S.

"Since breaking ground for a casino to be located on a nine-acre site along Michigan Avenue in Buffalo's Cobblestone neighborhood on Dec. 9, the Senecas have been moving full speed ahead. On Dec. 26, a 13-page request for proposals went out to the hand-picked group of architects, setting in motion a selection schedule aimed at designating a winner for what's expected to be a $200 million project by the end of the month…"
