One M&T Plaza is an office tower located in Buffalo, New York and home to M&T Bank in Erie County. The 21-story International style office tower was designed by Minoru Yamasaki with Duane Lyman Associates and completed in 1966.[2] The structural steel for the building was produced locally by Bethlehem Steel, and was a product of their V50 grade.[3] The base of the building is composed of white and green marble with an interior of travertine. The building also features a 75-by-225 foot exterior plaza.


Three notable buildings existed on the current site prior to One M&T Plaza. These included:[4]

  • The Richmond Hotel (1887-1888)
  • Iroquois Hotel, also known as the Gerrans building (1889-1940)
  • Bond Clothing Company Building (1940-1964)
