At the time this 40-story, 841,000 SF office tower
was completed in 1973, it was the largest building in New York State
outside of New York City. Designed by the San Francisco office of
Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, using large precast panels with exposed
aggregate, the building bridges the 100-foot-wide Main Street in downtown
Buffalo and is a landmark in western New York. In addition to being
headquarters for Marine Midland Bank, it also housed other quality
tenants such as IBM and Dominick & Dominick.
