700 Main-Stokes by Architectural Resources

Design Brief

Project Location: Buffalo, NY

The former Stokes Seed Company Building has been a local landmark in the Historic Theatre District since 1911. Vacant for a decade, the building once served as a multi-level showroom for the sale of Ford Model T automobiles.

The Stokes project created three floors of loft style commercial lease space with spectacular views up Main Street. The exterior of the building was fully restored, including the entrance storefront system and it’s prismatic art glass clerestory. The art glass features patterns that were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Luxfer Art Glass Company. The Buffalo Board for Historic Preservation and the Mayor’s Office of the City of Buffalo bestowed their highest award for Excellence in Preservation to this project.
