Several responses to supermarket project


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Developers are showing a lot of interest in bringing a supermarket to the heart of downtown Buffalo.

Proposals from developers were due Wednesday for a proposed supermarket downtown.

A spokesperson for Mayor Byron Brown said that the city received multiple responses, which will all be reviewed soon.

Plans call for a supermarket to be the anchor tenant in a mixed use structure on Oak Street near Ellicott Street, which is currently occupied by a parking lot.

Earlier this year, a representative from Tops told 2 On Your Side they were interested in being a part of the project.
