BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- Construction is finished at Delaware North’s new headquarters.
The bigger and brighter building is equipped with mobile WiFi, a Lego wall, and even chalk art.
The company was founded by the Jacobs family in 1915. They grew up in downtown Buffalo, and wanted the headquarters to stay in the Queen City and bring more economic development to Western New York.
The company employs about 350 people.
Delaware North will share the new space with two subsidiaries, the Westin Buffalo and the Patina Restaurant, which are still under construction.
The new digs also have a living, green, bio-filter wall.
A company spokesperson said Delaware North employees had a lot of say in how their new space would be used.
“We surveyed our employees before we designed this space. We factored in some of the requests they had for natural light, and more innovative technology and the ability to be adjacent to the departments that were important to them. And we succeeded in trying to do that,” said Delaware North’s VP of Corporate Finance and Development, Dan Zimmer.
Delaware North will occupy around 80 percent of the building. Staff has already moved in.
The project cost an estimated $110 million.
