HHL Architects was engaged to provide design and engineering services for the restoration of this National Register-listed historic, art deco, former New York Central train terminal located in Buffalo's East Side. Our initial assignment in 1996 was the execution of a comprehensive Existing Conditions Study of the complex of buildings. Subsequent work focused on repairing/restoring the building envelope to be weather tight in order to halt deterioration. This phase of the project dealt with roofs, windows and doors. Following, a masonry survey identifying areas needing repointing or rebuilding was completed.
All work was completed under the auspices of the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation and funded, in part, by NYS EPF grant program. The project is in compliance with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Treatment of Historic Properties.
