The Harlow C. Curtiss Building is a historic 6 floor, Chicago Commercial / Renaissance Revival style building named for Harlow Clarke Curtiss, a prominent Buffalo attorney and real estate investor. The building bears a resemblance to the works of renowned Chicago architects such as Daniel Burnham and Louis Sullivan, both of whom designed buildings in Buffalo.
The Curtiss Building was designed by Curtiss' brother-in-law - Buffalo architect Paul F. Mann. Construction on the building was started in 1912 and completed in 1913. It is one of the largest terra cotta structures of its type and period in downtown Buffalo.
