First National


Manny Hanny Development Corp. (an affiliate of Savarino Companies)

The First National project was the historic renovation of the long-abandoned 1915 First National Bank building and adjacent former Siegel’s Shoes building in downtown Olean, New York. Developed, built, and managed by Savarino Companies.

The 10-story First National building, known locally as the  “Manny Hanny Building” because of its former occupant Manufacturer’s Hanover Bank houses 21 market-rate luxury apartments on floors 2-10.

The former bank floor and mezzanine will house commercial, event, and art spaces. The building is now being managed by Savarino Properties.

The two-story former Siegel’s Shoes building was renovated into class-A office space. Funding sources included federal and New York State Historic Tax Credits, federal New Market Tax Credits, Downtown Reinvestment Initiative (DRI) grants from New York State Empire Development Corporation, and private financing.
