10 Lafayette Square, also known as the Tishman building, is a high-rise office tower located in Lafayette Square in Buffalo, New York. Completed in 1959, it is the thirteenth-tallest building in Buffalo, standing at 263 feet (80 m) and 20 stories tall. The building is located adjacent to the Rand Building and built in the International Style. The structural frames for the building are not steel, but concrete beams and columns. The building architects were Emery Roth & Sons of New York city.
For 81 years (1876-1957), the six-story, cast iron, Buffalo German Insurance Company Building (a Victorian Italianate architecture office was built by Richard A. Waite) existed on current land site prior to the Tishman Building.
In May, 2011, the Amherst-based Hamister Group purchased the Tishman building. Shortly after, they announced $41 million mixed use plans for the building, including a 123-room Hilton Garden Inn, two floors of apartments, and three floors of office space.
