Problem

The Hotel Henry, formerly known as the Richardson Olmsted Complex, located in Buffalo, New York, underwent extensive renovations to transform its buildings into a cultural tourism destination.

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 88-room hotel and urban resort conference center, designed to accommodate groups of 50-500 people, are operated by InnVest Lodging, a Buffalo-headquartered company widely known for operating The Mansion on Delaware Avenue, a boutique hotel in the city.

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