Four prominent local developers, along with hundreds of eager western new yorkers gathered in the Mary Seaton Room and Kleinhans Music Hall Thursday evening, for some long awaited unveilings.

The reuse of the soon to be vacant Women and Children's Hospital took center stage.  The 617,000 square foot facility, situated between Bryant and Hodge will be a hot commodity come 2017, and residents want to ensure future plans fit the fabric of the Elmwood Village.
