Making way for the Riv


Tonawanda News —

Bringing the project from concept to reality has taken five years, Cannata said. It will also add to the theater's revenue stream, he noted.  

"I never thought I would spend the whole day being excited watching a building come down," he said. "And dreaming about what's going to become a reality in the near future." 

Cannata said it appears that some early funding may be in the works, though his group will also need to turn to the community for further financial support. 

"We've already had some interest from some large donors," he said. "We want to build on the momentum. We will, in the next couple of months, have a shovel-ready piece of property."
