Waterfront Development: Nothing’s Easy

Here’s a photo of a billboard located next to the old NanoDynamics building off Fuhrmann Boulevard. The heavily subsidized business went belly-up, but that doesn’t mean a new entrepreneur couldn’t be successful in that location, right?
The Niagara Frontier Transit Authority (NFTA) even advertises this handy contact number (855-7413) if you’re interested in leasing some space. Feeling ambitious, in a job-creator kind of way, I figured I’d give them a buzz to see what kind of rent I’d be paying.
Unfortunately, extension 7413 has not been activated. You can, however, press “0” to talk to an operator. Or, maybe not. When I did that, the phone just rang off the hook. Click here to listen.
So how’s a bigwig like myself supposed to set up shop on the waterfront?
