Olympic Towers, Buffalo, NY


Description of Work:

Acquest worked closely with the New York State Historic Preservation Office to renovate the ten-story South Tower and combine it with a newly constructed four-story north tower to create the present Olympic Towers which offers 180,000 square feet of Class A office space.  Olympic Towers is a combination of a historic ten story brick building, and a contemporary four story glass curtained building.  These two structures are connected by a four story glass curtained atrium known as The Galleria.  The Historic South Tower was built in 1900 and served as the Buffalo YMCA until 1977.  It was designed in the English-Flemish Renaissance style.

Building Type:

Ten Story Class A Office


180,000 Square Feet

Project Results:

A facade restored to its original elegance, high level finishes in the public areas as well as in tenant suites, and generous natural lighting afforded by numerous skylights all combine to make Olympic Towers a unique Class A building in the central business district.

Project Significance:

Listed as a National Landmark on the National Historic Register, Acquest was able to maintain the historic significance of Olympic Towers while producing Class A offices.
