Last Thursday night members of our team joined in celebrating 14 projects that were honored as the 2015 Landmark Association’s Most Enhanced projects in the St. Louis area, including Reliance Bank – The Grove.
These awards recognize the tremendous work that St. Louis rehabbers/developers have done to renovate some of our city’s architectural landmarks. A ceremony was held at the original Artists’ Guild building that has been beautifully restored and transformed into the Boo Cat Club.
“To see all these historic renovations is very inspiring,” said Larry Valenza, Senior Project Manager for M+H Architects. He added, “The transformation of these buildings is astonishing; it’s amazing what can happen with a little creativity and a lot of hard work. I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love for a living and work on such innovative projects.”
Winners of this award are selected based on the difficulty of the project, the capacity of the project to have a transformational effect on its surroundings, the historical or architectural significance of the building, and on the project’s power to inspire. Reliance Bank – The Grove was among 14 total winners including the Boo Cat Club, the Old Cathedral, Lambert Airport, and Union Station. Congratulations to all teams involved!
