Construction Workers Brave Frigid Temps

While many of us were huddled inside this past week due to the nationwide deep freeze, construction crews remained hard at work at Buffalo, N.Y.’s HarborCenter, where workers hoisted a 25.5-ton ice plant onto the sixth floor of the steel-framed structure.

Now that the ice plant is in place for the 19-story mixed-use hockey and entertainment facility, set to open this fall when it becomes the home of the Buffalo Jr. Sabres (part of the Ontario Junior Hockey League) and recently acquired Buffalo Regals youth hockey organization, workers will start erecting the structural steel that will eventually house two rinks, 11 locker rooms, a training facility and more, according to a WKBW news story.
