The active skyline

ARC605 | Spring 2013

The Active Skyline takes advantage of the views of the existing skyway and all of its surroundings to benefit the health and interests of the public of Buffalo. The areas around the skyline are very well linked to athletics with the Buffalo Sabres and Bandits playing adjacent to it as well as The Buffalo Bisons not far away. Connections to the NFTA Station and the Buffalo Rail will allow Buffalonians access and the local gyms will encourage the members of those gyms to utilize the Active Skyline. The project is composed of different zones that include an area for retail and rental, sledding and park, restaurant and viewing of Buffalo sports, and an athletic complex, that are all laced together with the track.
