^ thanks for the info; good to hear that groundwork is being done for the future developments.

It’s funny that they call that new Hamot bldg. a “tower” at a dizzying height of 7(!) stories

Right, I'm sure the new tower will be an improvement over the building that was there, but I wish UPMC would have just left the original building and built the new one on the big surface parking lot just to the east. Oh well, maybe that's for "future development".

I just despise Hamot's suburban campus in the location that it's in. Way too many surface parking lots and 1-story buildings. I mean, how many downtown buildings have you ever seen that have parking lots in front of them? It's really pitiful that Erie is full of that stuff.

Multiple full-scale, restorations of historic properties are occurring in downtown Erie:

West 6th Street National Historic District

All undergoing historically-accurate renovations to be converted to market-rate residential or office space.














Lower State Street

Former Troy Steam Laundry/American Surplus Store building (1880s) on left and adjoining Greeley-Sterrett House (1820s) on right to be restored and converted to 3 loft apartments in the commercial building and 2 apartments in the house. The house was a residence of Horace Greeley (famed founder of the New York Tribune and owner of the quote "Go west, young man").

Drove down State St today. Both bldgs were fully covered by a canvas façade
with work ongoing.
On some of those homes W 6th st, I had been in several of those over the yrs.
The craftmanship in the woodwork is amazing. One had A ballroom on the 3rd fl
with an orchestra balcony. Several also had attendants stairs from the kitchen
to the upper floors.
Magnificent Mansions of Millionaire's Row.

Noticed that construction on the Bay House restaurant connected to the parking garage on Sassafras St. Pier is well underway. Looks like they are adding structural steel for a 2nd floor/rooftop level. This should be a welcome addition, and hope it helps spur the significant planned development on the pier. Will be good to see the residential component that is planned to "wrap" the garage.

Good idea to utilize the lot where a McDonald's used to be during the winter months before groundbreaking commences on the office/residential development planned for the block.
