Historic Albany Foundation Award

The Historic Albany Foundation (HAF) has selected 17 Chapel Street to receive a Sustainable Cities Award for “Urban Redevelopment Using an Existing Structure.” As part of its effort to promote Albany’s unique architectural legacy, HAF gives annual awards for projects, individuals or groups that demonstrate excellence and a commitment to preserving the architectural heritage in and around the City of Albany.

Historic Albany Foundation is a private, not-for-profit membership organization working to promote the preservation and appreciation of the built environment in and around the city of Albany. Since 1974, Historic Albany Foundation has fulfilled its mandate through public education, promotion and membership, provision of design and technical assistance, community projects, advocacy for endangered buildings, publications, tours, lectures and operation of an architectural parts warehouse.

Historic Albany Foundation will be presenting this award at its annual meeting which takes place on May 8th, 2012 at 5:30 PM at the Albany County Courthouse at 16 Eagle Street.
