Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation
Savarino Companies is currently serving as General Contractor for the new construction of an interpretive structure along Erie Canal’s historic Commercial Slip at Canalside. The Longshed will be a 2-story, 5,000 sq. ft. heavy timber structure with vertical and horizontal wood siding designed to provide homage to the former canal loading and unloading buildings that historically lined the Erie Canal in Buffalo.
The Buffalo Maritime Center will be the first occupant of the Longshed and will build a replica canal packet boat. After that, the building will serve a variety of public uses year round.
