10 Lafayette Square, also known as the Tishman building, is a high-rise office tower located in Lafayette Square in Buffalo, New York. Completed in 1959, it is the thirteenth-tallest building in Buffalo, standing at 263 feet (80 m) and 20 stories tall. The building is located adjacent to the Rand Building and built in the International Style. The structural frames for the building are not steel, but concrete beams and columns. The building architects were Emery Roth & Sons of New York city.
For 81 years (1876–1957), the six-story, cast iron, Buffalo German Insurance Company Building (a Second Empire-style office building built by Richard A. Waite) existed on current land site prior to the Tishman Building.
In May 2011, the Amherst-based Hamister Group purchased the Tishman building. They spent $41 million renovating the building into a mixed use complex including the 123-room Hilton Garden Inn Buffalo Downtown, two floors of apartments, and three floors of office space.
It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012, as the Tishman Building.
