The 123,230 SF, four-story masonry building is situated on a fully wooded 18-acre parcel. The site is adjacent to the historic Erie Canal, which served as inspiration for the building aesthetics. Finishes, natural wood and stone, were inspired by the canals lock buildings and wooded site, blending the interior with the exterior. The design of the entry ceiling is warm, uplifting and open.
The project earned LEED Silver Certification with the United States Green Building Council.
