The Delaware North Building at 250 Delaware Avenue

The Delaware North Building at 250 Delaware Avenue is an iconic 12-story glass walled structure on the corner of Delaware and Chippewa in the Central Business District (CBD). The Delaware North Building serves as the world headquarters for Delaware North, a global leader in hospitality and food service that was founded in Buffalo nearly 100 years ago. This stunning new building also contains a Westin hotel, Class A office space, retail, and an adjacent parking garage. The project’s design integrates the latest advances in environmental and energy conservation, producing a high LEED certification. The building also features a 7,000-square-foot courtyard and garden, providing an urban oasis in the middle of the city. The project is a win-win for the community – it adds a new world-class building to Buffalo’s cityscape, enhances community renewal, restores a contaminated brownfield, and provides a substantial economic impact for the city.
