    60 stories would be height limit within Falls


    From the Buffalo News:

    A new system of tiered building heights proposed for the downtown commercial district would allow buildings as tall as 60 stories on some blocks under a newly revised set of proposed zoning codes.

    Allowing even taller buildings on some city streets closest to the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel was an attempt to strike a balance between an earlier proposal approved by the Planning Board and concerns from the City Council about restricting downtown development.

    The previous proposal would have allowed buildings as tall as 30 stories on some blocks — 10 stories taller than what is currently permitted — but was criticized by some as placing too many limitations on building heights.

    “I think that this is an excellent compromise,” said Planning Board member Michael F. Lewis.
