The new HarborCenter got approval today (February 12) from the Buffalo Planning Board.  The HarborCenter Project, which will be located in front of the First Niagara Center, is estimated at $170 million and could break ground as early as next month.

HarborCenter plans include two indoor hockey rinks, a 200-room hotel, a parking ramp, a sports bar and more. About 350 jobs are expected to be generated from the new development.  The facility is slated to open in September 2014.
