Hunt’s high-end vision is to revive city’s tallest tower



Quote:
March 3, 2014

Imagine a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, the biggest condos in Buffalo and a Tiffany’s jewelry store, all in one building, atop a new and much larger Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.

Now put that all in downtown Buffalo, at the foot of Main Street, right next to Canalside. And the building’s already there.

Welcome to Peter F. Hunt’s new high-end vision for Buffalo’s tallest edifice, One Seneca Tower.

At 38 stories, it is the most dominant property in the city, with views that extend throughout Western New York and even as far as Toronto when the skies are clear.

But the former One HSBC Center is also 95 percent vacant and in foreclosure, after its three largest tenants all left, leaving only about 20 small offices on the upper floors and barely any tenant revenue. And that has left many real estate observers such as Hunt, chairman and CEO of Hunt Real Estate – as well as developers and rival property owners – concerned, frustrated and perplexed about what to do.

That’s because there simply isn’t enough office demand to fill up the space. Given the building’s size – 851,000 square feet – and the average pace at which Buffalo’s downtown market takes up empty real estate, it would take 10 to 15 years to absorb it. Also, it would need to be updated to try to meet the needs of today’s tenants.

Experts including the Urban Land Institute already recommended a mixed-use development as the solution, incorporating multiple concepts under one roof. Such a diverse mix is necessary to avoid having 851,000 square feet of space dumped on the local office market at deeply discounted rates, which they say would be a disaster for other buildings.

But the conversion costs would still be large, with most estimates in the tens of millions of dollars, even as high as $100 million. Nevertheless, that’s not stopping local real estate developers and others such as Hunt from kicking around ideas, in hopes of preventing a major building from going dark.

Hunt doesn’t want to just target any clientele. Instead, he wants to use the 38-story structure to fill the gap he sees in the local market for the highest-quality upscale accommodations, living, office space and shopping, all in one building. He even compared it to a 60-story building at 900 Michigan Ave. in Chicago, an older office building retrofitted by one developer into a Four Seasons hotel, condominiums, offices and a smaller high-end mall.

“This is the single best opportunity that exists for stepping up the quality of downtown,” Hunt said.

Just curious why does it say UB Med school when none of the pictures are of the school?

It wonderful to see this major renaissance happening in Buffalo. There is so much beautiful architecture there, locals should be proud of what you have.
