That may be true but the reason for that Is because the 2 building are fully offices. Buffalo is seeing a rise in real estate, houses are being sold very quickly so if people add in some mixed use buildings or apartment buildings I can see buffalo getting bigger. The problem with the one Seneca tower is that most offices are a lot of square footage and very out of date. The one Seneca is going under renovation and I feel like it will be completely used in the coming years. All buffalo needs is a good face lift and I belive it could become as good as it was back in the day. When I graduate college I plan on opening an architecture firm and once that grows I want to take time to develop buffalo. I see potential in every aspect of the city and I believe I could turn it into not only a huge city but a great place to live.

I'm about 50/50 on the skyline battle. Buffalo's skyline looks phenomonal at night coming down the ridge on the 219 by Chestnut Ridge Park. Likewise, Rochester's skyline looks equally impressive at night on the westbound 490 descending the hill near the Woodcliff Resort. As far as distance, the furthest I've seen the Buffalo skyline is from atop the Superman at Darien Lake. (20-25 miles). Rochester's skyline I've seen from as far away as Avon on the northbound 390 (roughly the same distance as Buffalo's skyline from Darien Lake), though I'm sure people have seen both cities from further.

Buffalo skyline is visible on the 219 north just past genessee road, between 25 and 30 miles from downtown.
