10 Lafayette / The Tishman Building
Downtown Buffalo, 2014
The redevelopment of the iconic Tishman Building was anchored by the commitment of Hilton Worldwide awarding a Hilton Garden Inn franchise to Hamister Group, Inc. The new downtown hotel occupies floors 1 through 14 (the ground floor is shared with the lobby, and is used by the residential and commercial business tenants). Floors 15 through 17 house market rate apartments, 6 per floor for a total of 18. Floors 18 through 20 house Hamister Group, Inc returning their corporate offices to downtown Buffalo. In keeping with the building's original design intent, each floor is configured and finished to suit the specific needs of the tenants. This historic landmark overlooks Lafayette Square in the heart of downtown Buffalo. Inspired by the surrounding region, the hotel's aesthetic greets travelers with identifiable local flavors, while the apartments are adorned with a sleek urban finish.
