The building is a short walking distance to numerous eateries including Nicky’s Tai Kitchen, Giorgio’s Place, Modern Café, Peppi’s, Ada Coffee and Tea House and Allegheny Sandwich Shop.
HISTORY OF THE NORTHERN LIGHT TOWER
In 1926, Donaldson Transfer constructed a seven-story fireproof building on Western Ave. Originally used for furniture storage, this facility was leased to Buhl Optical in 1948. Buhl manufactured a variety of custom lenses for eyeglasses and industrial equipment. In the early 1960’s Buhl sold the Eyewear division to focus on its growing industrial business. Buhl developed the lens system used by all overhead projectors. The Buhl Overhead projector was a staple at schools nationwide. Buhl, the world’s most diversified lens manufacturer, sold this division in the early 1970’s. In 1998, Buhl merged with a competitor and has since relocated to Rochester, New York.
A young entrepreneur, Jim Genstein, realized the potential and beauty of this historic structure. Having recently completed a development on Pittsburgh’s Southside, Jim began work on acquiring the Buhl building. In 2004, the property along with the parking areas was developed by Jim’s company, NS Property LP into a new 35,000 sq ft office complex known as the Northern Light Tower.
