D'Youville College officials presented revised renderings for its $20 million renovation of the former Gateway-Longview building on Niagara Street at a community meeting Thursday.

The new proposal is substantially different from the previous one, which ran into criticism from community stakeholders and members of the city's Preservation Board. Among other things, it preserves more of the original structures from demolition.

Edward Cogan, D'Youville's associate vice president for operations, said the new drawings received positive comments at the meeting, at Madonna Hall on Porter Street, and will again be presented to the Preservation Board at its meeting next week.

D'Youville has been working with Uniland Development Company on its plans for the building, which will be renamed the School of Arts, Sciences and Education, and include about 85,000 square feet of academic space. It includes a strong focus on science-related programs, including lab space and classrooms.
