No Bass Pro in the B-lo

Yesterday I broke the story that the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corp. wasmoving Canal Side forward without Bass Pro…today, the EDHDC held a press conference confirming what you read on these pages yesterday…NO BASS PRO FOR THE B-LO.

From Brian Higgins and something a lot of people felt…

“They’re not coming, but they never were,” Rep. Brian Higgins, D-Buffalo, said this afternoon.

It will be interesting to see how this impacts the Canal Side project…will the ECHDC change its focus to another large retail anchor or will they fall in line with what some segments of the community have been clamoring for, a focus on local businesses.

This whole courtship of Bass Pro has been bizarre to say the least.

UPDATE: Read Bass Pro’s letter to Brian Higgins on Artvoice’s website in response to his ultimatum last week
