The striking elegance of the curved 12-story glass-walled exterior provides captivating views of the city and Lake Erie. The unique elliptical entry rounds a key city corner and the reconstructed terra cotta facade pays homage to the site’s architectural history.
The Delaware North Building at 250 Delaware Avenue is an iconic 12-story glass walled structure on the corner of Delaware and Chippewa in the Central Business District (CBD), and serves as the world headquarters for the Delaware North Corporation, a global leader in hospitality and food service. This stunning new building also contains a Westin hotel, Class A office space, retail, and an adjacent parking garage. The project’s design integrates the latest advances in environmental and energy conservation. The building also features a 7,000-square-foot courtyard and garden, providing an urban oasis in the middle of the city.
The 460 square foot living green wall is connected to the indoor air system to clean the air in the lobby.
The site design incorporated green roof areas to reduce the imperviousness of the site, a stormwater cistern providing rainwater harvesting for irrigation and a CrystalStream stormwater filter to improve runoff quality before discharging to the municipal sewers.
