Benderson Development Company has been awarded the development rights for the former Donovan State Office Building in Buffalo, US.
The Canal Side project will be designed by Fontanese Folts Aubrecht Ernst Architects.
Work on the redevelopment of the Donovan State Office building is slated to begin in December 2011.
The existing building will be stripped down to its structural steel elements before being redeveloped into 150,000ft² of office space, lobby-level retail and restaurants, as well as a conference centre.
Plans also include a two-storey car park that will be directly connected to the east and north sides of the building.
The redeveloped building will be built to achieve LEED Silver certification.
The Canal Side project will completed by 1 January 2014.
