The Park Country Club of Buffalo

In January 2015, HHL Architects updated the 2008 Facilities Conditions Study for The Park Country Club. The extent of the facilities included the site, the 1927-built English Scholastic Style Clubhouse, all accessory buildings (pool bath house, grounds maintenance facilities, golf course), including vehicle and foot-bridges on the course. Designed by renowned clubhouse architect Clifford C. Wendehack, the 50,200 square foot Gothic-Tudor inspired clubhouse is constructed of brick and stone masonry with classic slate roofs. The club’s desire for the update was to address structural and preservation concerns and to validate and guide their planning for capital project improvements over the next 5-10 years.

The report identified and prioritized projects totaling an estimated $1,840,000 over a period of the next 1-10 years. The club requested the category “New Projects,” an itemized ‘wish-list’ of future projects that included a new tennis facility outbuilding, renovating the pool bath house building to include a second-floor fitness facility, replacement of existing historic metal windows and exterior lighting for the clubhouse and new air conditioning for the main dining banquet hall spaces. These “New Projects” were estimated at cost of $1,928,000.
