Congratulations to the project teams of the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel and the Stony Island Arts Bank in Chicago for each receiving a Dreihaus Preservation Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation at the PastFoward Conference held in Houston, Texas last week. Below are the award videos that accompanied the honors.
Yesterday in Boston, the National Housing & Rehabilitation Association (NH&RA) presented nine prestigious “Timmy” Awards. This is the 11th year of the program that honors the memory of Boston architect, educator and preservation advocate, Timothy J. Anderson and acknowledges outstanding real estate projects that transform older, historic buildings into new uses with historic tax credits.
Over the weekend, Stony Island Arts Bank was honored at Landmarks Illinois’ 2016 Richard. H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards. This program is designed to recognize “extraordinary stories of people saving special places throughout the state and show how historic restoration has a positive impact on communities, the environment and the people of Illinois.”
In a field of 12 finalists for ULI Chicago’s 5th Annual Vision Awards, MHA Midwest was the historic consultant for four projects: ARC at Old Colony, Chicago Athletic Association, Hampton Inn (Chicago Motor Club), and Stony Island Arts Bank. These projects represented almost all of the landmark properties that made the list, and are outstanding examples of adaptive reuse and the positive impacts of historic tax credits.
