A total of seventeen nominations for the 2017 Preservation Awards were submitted for historic homes, buildings,and districts around Western New York.

“These awards highlight the achievements of community restorations as a vital component of the Western New York renaissance”, said Jessie Fisher, PBN Executive Director. We look forward to bringing continued recognition of our architectural heritage for many generations to come!”

This year’s award winners are:

Outstanding Commercial Project: Turner Brothers Lofts: Located at 295 Niagara Street, the project consists of five formerly vacant interconnected historic brownfield structures that have been redeveloped into 40 market-rate apartments, a restaurant, and a gourmet food wholesale production space. This project was made possible by architect Jake Schneider of Schneider Development, LLC.

Outstanding Residential Project: 656 Lafayette Ave: Designed by Buffalo architect William Johnson and built in 1898, this house includes various late Victorian and Arts & Crafts elements including numerous bay windows, deep overhanging eves, brick and shingle siding and a steep side-gabled roof with prominent dormers. This project was made possible by homeowners, Tom and Melina Scime,whom have owned the Lafayette Avenue home since 1982.

Community Service: International Chimney Inc.: Their pro bono feasibility study for 907 Michigan Avenue’s relocation seeks to retain the 19th Century workman’s cottage, also known as a telescoping house, while working in close collaboration with citywide efforts to retain the character of the Fruit Belt neighborhood, as residents continue to cope with rapid changes in the adjacent Buffalo-Niagara Medical Campus. Additional support for this project was made possible by the Fruit Belt/McCarley Gardens Housing Task Force and the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor.

Outstanding Public Building Project: Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens: Botanical Gardens: Houses 2 and 3 contain the iconic waterfall and Koi pond area, some of the most popular attractions at the Botanical Gardens.

Neighborhood Conservation: Richardson Olmsted Campus Core Project: The transformation of the Richardson Olmsted Campus is a key part of the Elmwood Arts Corridor, the regeneration of the West Side and Black Rock neighborhoods, and Buffalo's overall economic and cultural revival. This project was made possible by the Richardson Center Corporation, which received state funding shortly after its establishment in 2006.

Preservation Craft: Buffalo Architectural Casting: In 2014, Buffalo Architectural Casting completed restoration work at the Gowanda Hollywood Theater, a historic landmark on both the New York State and National registries.

Outstanding Personal Contribution: Monica Pellegrino Faix: As Executive Director of the Richardson Center Corporation, Monica Pellegrino Faix has been key to the transformation of the Richardson Olmsted Campus.

People’s Choice: Greetings from Buffalo: Casey William Milbrand’s mural takes inspiration from other cities’ murals, vintage postcards, and Buffalo’s own architectural history.

  • My boyfriend left me for another girl for some silly reasons. He keeps telling me that I am nothing to him. He said he wants to be with the other girl. that he has no feeling for me anymore. This started more than one month ago. By this time he also speaks to me but not in his own mood or to rebuild our relationship. He does so because I request him to be with me at least for some hours or some minute… we talk only once …but I can’t stay without him. I want him back.. I was really worried and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Lord Zuma can help get ex lover back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do, and I did it then he did a Love spell for me. Some hours later, my boyfriend really called me and told me that he misses me so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me when he left. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, All thanks to Lord Zuma. he is so powerful and I decided to share my happiness on the internet that Lord Zuma is real. if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast.
