Congratulations to our 2018 Preservation Award recipients!

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the historic Fox Building last night to celebrate and honor this year’s preservation award recipients.

From the rehabilitation of the historic house on Walrad Street in Irvington (a project that one member of our review committee compared to a phoenix rising from the ashes) to the meticulous repairs at Homewood House and Krieger Hall on the Johns Hopkins University campus—our 2018 award recipients varied widely. The awards showcase how preservation can include everything from a meticulous restoration of the grand library at Baltimore City College to the remarkable rehabilitation at the SNF Parkway Theater that almost freezes in time the building’s worn but still magnificent interior.

Please read on for the list of award recipients or take a look at the full slideshow for before and after photos of all of the projects. Thank you again to everyone who participated last night, volunteered for the event and on our awards review committee, and to all of our generous sponsors.

    Regarding 4107 Walrad, I thank the Board for the award to MLR Development Corp. and I thank Johns for his words when describing the award. The award and Johns’ words encourage me and I’m sure other preservervation-minded developers to keep it up.
