BUFFALO, N.Y. - Urban Land Institute's Young Leaders Group of Western New York (YLG), a global nonprofit research and education institute geared towards young working professionals, recently hosted a presentation, self-guided tour and networking event for 225 people at Statler City in downtown Buffalo. Statler City is developer Mark Croce's rebirth of the Statler Hotel and Buffalo's first mixed-use entertainment destination.

 

During the presentation, Croce unveiled a number of tenant negotiations in the works including Muscoreils Café and Bakery, an upscale fitness center, and a regional bank. Robert E. Knoer, legal representative for Statler City and founder of The Knoer Group, PLLC, also discussed a possible public-private partnership opportunity with the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center to build a 50,000 square foot building above Statler City's banquet facility to connect the two buildings in an effort to attract and accommodate larger conventions to the region.

 

"Mark's commitment to preserving the Statler and incorporating his business philosophy to make it a successful and thriving operation speaks volumes of his dedication to the City of Buffalo," says Knoer. "While banquet, event space, and multiple bars and restaurants are planned for the lower levels of Statler City, Mark has decided to let the market dictate what the highest and best purpose for the towers will be."
