15-Sep-23 – Two repurposed downtown buildings have won awards for adaptive reuse from Landmarks Illinois.
Tribune Tower and The Old Chicago Main Post Office are among eight winners of this year’s Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Preservation Awards, announced on September 12.
“As we have seen over the 30 years of our awards program, preservation has a lasting impact on our Illinois communities. When we save and reuse a historic building or bring attention to stories from our past, the entire community benefits. Economies grow, pride of place increases, and places that have stood as an anchor in neighborhoods for generations are reborn to serve residents and visitors in new, exciting ways,” said McDonald.
An awards ceremony is scheduled for October 27 at the Athenaeum Center for Thought and Culture located at 2936 North Southport Avenue in Chicago.
