 The structure was built in 1915 for the Buffalo Meter Company, a manufacturer of liquid meters.  In 1971, the State of New York acquired the building from The Singer Company, as successor to Buffalo Meter Company, and after a rehabilitation in 1973, the SUNY School of Architecture and Design moved into the building and renamed it Bethune Hall (named after Louse Blanchard Bethune, architect of the Lafayette Hotel, the first professional woman architect in the United States).

A complete redevelopment of the building including the roof, site, exterior and mechanical systems will be undertaken.  When complete, the building will house approximately 87 one and two bedroom market rate luxury loft style apartments, a laundry and a fitness factory.
