MarksNelson is pleased to announce five clients have won Missouri Preservation Honor Awards. For the last 38 years, the organization recognizes projects which advance the field of historic preservation across the state.
MarksNelson’s real estate team worked closely with each owner or developer identifying needs ranging from consulting, tax and audit services to cost certifications and new market as well as historic tax credits.
The winners are chosen from applications in four different categories and given to individual historic building projects, people and or projects that have inspired historic preservation, and published works promoting Missouri’s architectural history. All of MarksNelson’s clients are in the Preserve Missouri Award category which recognizes Commercial Revitalization, Building Restoration, Neighborhood Revitalization and Residential Rehabilitation to name a few. The awards were handed out on March 22, 2018.
The following project information is taken directly from the Missouri Preservation site.
Westport Commons – The development team utilized a combination of historic and new market tax credits to finance the $19.1 million project turning the old Westport Middle School building into world’s largest co-working facility.
East 9 Pickwick Plaza – The $66 million rehab project utilized both local incentives, federal and state historic tax credits. Now fully occupied, the rehabilitated mixed-use building is proving to be a catalyst for revitalization in the eastern portion of downtown Kansas City.
Monett Historical Museum – Property owners began the transformation of the corner structure in 2013. Major renovations included structural stabilization, wood window replacement, new mechanical systems, and restoration of the original tin ceilings.
German American Bank Building – In 2014, Heartland Health and Mosaic Life Care chose to use state and federal historic tax credits to rehabilitate the building as an office space for over 200 employees.
Beck Event Center – The renovation of the former mechanic garage structure utilized state and federal historic tax credits and included taking the abandoned second floor at the rear and converting it to event preparation spaces, as well as creating a kitchen and support rooms. The front “garage” area was left open as the event venue.
