Nominations for Landmarks Most Enhanced Awards Now Open

Nominations for Landmarks Most Enhanced Awards Now Open

If you know of any outstanding historic rehabilitation projects that have been completed in the St. Louis area over the past year, please consider nominating them for a 2017 Most Enhanced Award! For 21 years, Landmarks Association has used the Most Enhanced Awards to recognize excellence in the restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse of St. Louis’ architectural heritage.

Award winners are selected based on the difficulty of the project, the capacity of the project to have a transformational effect on its surrounding area, the historical or architectural significance of the building, and on the project’s power to inspire. They are also selected with an eye toward a diversity of building types and development entities. Even if you are not in a position to nominate a building yourself, we would love to hear your suggestions. And, if you think that your own project is worthy of consideration, don’t be shy!

This year’s award ceremony will be held on May 25 at the home of the Kranzberg Arts Foundation aka “.Zack”  

You can download a copy of the Most Enhanced Awards nomination form here: MS Word / PDF.  All nominations must be received by Friday, May 5 to be considered.

For more information, or for a copy of the nomination as a WORD file, please email Andrew Weil [email protected]
