Richardson Olmsted Complex (Hotel Henry)

Buffalo, New York

The Richardson Olmsted Complex is currently undergoing extensive renovations to transform its buildings into a cultural tourism destination. LPCiminelli is the construction manager for the project.

The Urban Resort Conference Center is the cornerstone development of the Richardson Olmsted Complex, with a culinary experience at 100 Acres, The Kitchens at Hotel Henry. Both the planned 88-room hotel and urban resort conference center, designed to accommodate groups of 50-500 people, will be operated by InnVest Lodging, a Buffalo-headquartered company widely known for operating The Mansion on Delaware Avenue, a boutique hotel in the city.

The $69 million construction project is funded with $54 million in state support and will leverage $16 million in state and federal Historic Tax Credits. Construction began October 2014 and will continue for about two years. The result will be a unique hospitality site that will bring economic benefits to the region, including 500 construction jobs, 75 permanent jobs and direct sales and sales tax revenue.
