The Richardson Olmsted Complex Project Overview

McGuire Development was selected by the Richardson Center Corporation to be its owner’s representative and guide the organization through the renovation of one of Buffalo’s most iconic architectural treasures, the Richardson Olmsted Complex.

This project entails converting 180,000 sq. ft. of the complex into a boutique hotel, conference center, and the Buffalo Architectural Center, a museum that celebrates Buffalo’s architectural heritage. Other areas of the Richardson Center are being stabilized and prepared for future phases of development.

As an extension of the Richardson Center Corporation team, McGuire Development manages costs and the overall project schedule. Our team educates the organization on daily decisions and vendor disputes; reviews change orders for accuracy and fairness; facilitates furniture, fixtures, and equipment-related design and procurement decisions; and coordinates with the construction management team and all other project stakeholders to ensure the project proceeds on time and within budget.
