East Canal by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

The East Canal public space is an extension of the Canalside district, the celebrated terminus of the Erie Canal, and evokes the memory of the Main and Hamburg Canal. By design, the plaza very gradually slopes into the “canal” inviting the public to spontaneously enter the water. The multi-arched fountain, referencing the bridges that once crossed the canals, activates the water feature and provides children and adults with added attractions to play. The revitalization of this mixed-use public space is a major component of downtown Buffalo’s continued renaissance and a destination that celebrates its industrial past and rising future.

The project was completed in collaboration with C&S Companies.
