Sunday’s edition of the Buffalo News left me saying, “I’m SO proud to be a Buffalonian!” There were several positive articles on the city’s revival including more rails to trails and something that got me super excited: reinventing the old grain elevators into a World Class rock climbing center.
Those massive structures of cement have been a puzzling eye sore. How can we get rid of a bazillion tons of cement? Not cheap, easy or pretty. But you know what is? Upcycling them into a rock climbing and recreation mecca complete with indoor and outdoor climbing, yoga, kids climbing and kayaking.
Silo City Rocks LLC. is the company that is making this creative transformation from Buffalo, NY’s historic industrial past to an invigorating pulse of fitness and adventure.
If we want to continue to reinvent cities and foster urban renewal in a manner that preserves history and still give residents what they want, this is the kind of plans that need to move forward. Like I always say, “Take what you have and make it what you want.” This is a huge example that I hope proves to inspire globally.
