BUFFALO, N.Y.- A new name and a new look were unveiled for Central Park Plaza Monday.
LP Ciminelli showed off plans to bring about 600 housing units and several stores to the neighborhood, which will be called Highland Park.
"We are going to create a network of streets that will help knit this neighborhood back together again. For many years, this was a quarry, which dissected the neighborhood. And then it was a plaza which also interrupted the flow of this neighborhood," John Ciminelli, LP Ciminelli Vice President said.
Ciminelli has spent the past year planning this project, and say a lot of their ideas came from meetings they had with residents who live in the neighborhood..
The name Highland Park was actually what the neighborhood was called back in the 1900's.
