Avant glass to be inspected daily after mishap

BUFFALO, NY - Daily inspections are taking place of the exterior glass panels of one of Downtown Buffalo's newer signature buildings.

Last Tuesday, a pane of glass on the Avant building cracked and small pieces of glass fell onto a car parked in the private parking lot below.

No one was hurt.

Uniland, which owns the building, sent Two On Your Side a statement Friday night saying they've contacted the glass manufacturer to seek an explanation as to how and why this could have happened.

The company has also retained an independent engineer to inspect and provide an analysis of the glass curtain wall.

Power to the above ground portion was cut so the workers could safely work on the train. The underground portion (from Allen St. to UB) remained in service.

Riders trying to get downtown were diverted to surface buses at the Allen Street station.
