Buffalo, NY, August 23, 2010 - The Central Terminal Restoration Corporation (CTRC) recently launched a redesigned website at www.buffalocentralterminal.org, with the assistance of a local design and marketing firm, Beyondus (www.beyondus.com). The new website replaces the previous version with a brighter, more refreshed design feel consistent with the other branding efforts of the organization.
“Our Board, volunteers, and fans are excited to have a web presence that represents our group in such a professional way,” stated Derek Punaro, Treasurer of the CTRC, “Beyondus did a great job translating our requests into the design for the new site, and it will allow us to better showcase our plans for the future. This is particularly important in light of the upcoming 2011 National Preservation Conference, which will bring hundreds of like-minded preservationists from across the country to Buffalo.”
Beyondus became involved with the project after Karen Renzi, partner in the firm, attended a public tour of the Terminal in which the tour presenter expressed the organization’s need for updating its website to better reflect the progress and future of the Terminal.
“Like many others who have toured the Terminal, I was inspired and affected by this great gem in the city of Buffalo,” explained Renzi, “Even if, like me, you’ve never seen the Terminal in action, you can feel the history there and I just knew we had to get involved.”
The site’s launch coincides with the CTRC’s anticipated fall release of their Master Plan for redevelopment of the Terminal. The new site will better inform the increased number of site visitors expected after release of the Master Plan and as momentum builds ahead of the 2011 National Preservation Conference. The website highlights upcoming events, Terminal news, history, and ways individuals can get involved with supporting CTRC’s efforts. Visit the new website at www.buffalocentralterminal.org.
