The Huyler Building is a historic commercial and office building located in downtown Buffalo in Erie County, New York. It was built in 1926, and is a four-story, four bay, reinforced concrete building faced in cast stone and brick in the Classical Revival-style. The front facade features three large segmental-arched display windows, balustraded balconet, and carved "Huyler's" logo with flanking griffons. Some of the interior commercial space at 376 Delaware was installed by Antonin Raymond (1888-1976) in 1939-1940. It was originally built for the Huyler's candy company and for over 80 years occupied by the locally prominent Pitt Petri store.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.[1]
