Four Buffalo buildings nominated for Historic Register

Four Buffalo buildings have been nominated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the State and National Register of Historic Places.

They are:

Temple Beth Zion: The Neo-Expressionist complex, opened in 1967, was designed by architect Max Abramovitz, with artist Ben Shahn designing the stained glass.

Ziegele-Phoenix Refrigeration House & Office: The 1888 complex was part of the Ziegele (later Phoenix) Brewing Co. and represents the German Rundbogenstil style of architecture.

Shea's Seneca Building: The 1929 building was built by local theater magnate Michael Shea, who erected six movie palaces in Western New York.

Kreiner Malt House and Grain Elevator: The intact example of a malting facility was built and and operated between 1925 and 1936 by Kreiner & Sons malting company, a longtime supplier of malt to local brewers.
