Seneca One: Buffalo From Above Tour

September 30, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join Explore Buffalo for a tour that includes a visit to the top of Buffalo’s tallest building, Seneca One! This ninety-minute tour includes an overview of the history of Seneca One, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill for Marine Midland Bank. Today, Seneca One is owned by Douglas Development and is a hub for technology and innovation in WNY. Enjoy panoramic views of downtown Buffalo, Lake Erie, Canada, and Western New York from the top!

The tour will begin inside the west plaza entrance, at the base of the escalators. When facing Seneca One on the plaza, this is the entrance on the right. Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early so the tour can begin promptly at 5:30pm. This tour is up to ninety minutes in length and is fully accessible. Seneca One’s famous lobby bar from the set of The Sopranos is open before and after the tour (4-8pm).

Tour Notes:

  • We will NOT be visiting the roof, any M&T Bank spaces, or any residential units as they are all occupied.
  • Please wear walking shoes.
  • This is still work ongoing within the tower. Some areas are off limits. Every tour will be different.
