BUFFALO, N.Y. - Urban Land Institute's Young Leaders Group of Western New York (YLG), a subsidiary of the global nonprofit research and education institute, Urban Land Institute, is hosting a 100 Year Anniversary presentation of Buffalo's historic Electric Tower, owned and operated by Iskalo Development Corp. on Thursday, February 23, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. Pre-registration and the presentation will be located across the street at newly renovated retail space at 5 East Huron.

 

Home to Buffalo's Annual New Year's Eve Ball Drop and one of the most recognizable buildings in the Buffalo skyline, the Electric Tower was recently returned to its original grandeur including a comprehensive restoration of the building lobby, common areas, and a full building mechanical system replacement featuring many "Green" upgrades.

 

Attendees will be presented with how the project was brought to fruition as well as the different components of the project that enabled the rebirth of this historic building, including architecture, historic preservation, finance, construction and development. Following the presentation, guests will receive a personalized tour of the Electric Tower including the first and second floor lobby, the historic seventh floor, and several of the uniquely designed "tower" floors. Networking with an open bar and hors d'oeuvres will be catered by Rich's Catering.
