Explore Uniland’s Showcase Properties with Doors Open Buffalo

Sep 20, 2021

HANSA Workspace

Three of Uniland’s most prominent properties in downtown Buffalo will be participating in Doors Open Buffalo, a free event providing access to Buffalo’s incredible architecture on Saturday, September 25, 2021.

Doors Open Buffalo is presented by Explore Buffalo, a non-profit organization providing tours and other opportunities to discover Buffalo’s great architecture, history, and neighborhoods. Started in 2019, the event seeks to build on the momentum of other large cities, including Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee and Denver, which hold an annual Doors Open day to encourage greater awareness and appreciation of local architectural and cultural treasures.

Uniland is proud to feature three of its showcase buildings among the architectural gems of Buffalo.

They are:

HANSA workspace: Uniland’s homegrown professional flexible office space and modern coworking center in Buffalo is celebrating its first anniversary this month. Doors Open Buffalo participants have a change to enter to win a One-Month Private Office! Restored from the former Frey The Wheelman warehouse once used to store truck parts, today HANSA stands as a beautiful 32,000 square foot, two-story glass and brick building at 505 Ellicott Street in the Central Business District. HANSA (pronounced hähn-sä), is Latin for guild, meaning people uniting for a common purpose, and was inspired by the vision to build “An Elevated Office Experience” focused on flexibility and productivity.

HANSA offers daily, monthly and annual rentals of private offices, office suites, coworking desks, meeting rooms and event space, all in a collaborative and supportive community of professionals who make productivity, creativity, learning and networking part of their work-life integration.

Avant Building, Buffalo, NY

Avant: French for “Forward,” the building was Buffalo’s first mixed use development in the Central Business District. The building’s classic glass curtain wall profile reflects Buffalo today and tomorrow. This adaptive reuse project transformed a Brutalist 1972 asbestos-laden federal office building spanning an entire city block into a hub for live/work/play environments. Avant features the Embassy Suites by Hilton Buffalo hotel, Class A office space, a restaurant and luxury condominiums.

The Delaware North Building

The Delaware North Building: A flagship example of Buffalo’s resurgence, this iconic 12-story glass walled structure serving as the global headquarters for Delaware North, an international leader in hospitality and food service that was founded over 100 years ago. Once a contaminated brownfield site in the Central Business District, today it sports a world-class building containing the Westin Buffalo hotel, Class A offices, retailers, restaurants, and an adjacent 600 car parking garage.
