HHL Architects designed an adaptive reuse project for this historic mansion, formerly the Oracle Charter School and the Bishop McMahon High School. The mansion complex was originally designed by Buffalo-based Architect, E. B. Green, constructed for industrialist Charles W. Goodyear for his family in 1903.

The historic mansion, the two-story mid-century school addition and attached original carriage house has been converted into fifty-one market-rate apartment units. The apartments range in size from studios to three-bedrooms. One of the main goals of the restoration/renovation was to restore the main exterior feature of the building including the main front porch, which is lined with paired Doric columns. HHL worked closely with NYSHPO & NPS to achieve an historic tax credit for this interesting adaptive reuse project.
