Previous Building

For 81 years (1876-1957), the six-story, cast iron, Buffalo German Insurance Company Building (a Victorian Italianate architecture office was built by Richard A. Waite) existed on current land site prior to the Tishman Building.


The Tishman building was home to the Fortune 500 company, National Fuel Gas (formerly Iroquois Gas) until 2003 when the company relocated to the Buffalo suburb of Williamsville.

In May, 2011, the Amherst-based Hamister Group purchased the Tishman building. Shortly after, they announced $41 million mixed use plans for the building, including a 123-room Hilton Garden Inn, two floors of apartments, and three floors of office space.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012, as the Tishman Building.
