The Commission on Chicago Landmarks presented Preservation Excellence Awards to Randolph Tower and 2800 N. Milwaukee, now known as Hairpin Lofts, at its 14th annual awards ceremony held at DuSable High School on May 1, 2013.

A total of 14 projects, individuals and organizations were recognized for having made significant contributions to the preservation of the City’s historic buildings and places. The awards acknowledge extraordinary improvements to designated Chicago landmarks, properties within landmark districts and other projects that embody Chicago’s architectural heritage.  Each project was chosen by the Commission’s Permit Review Committee.

“We are proud of the outstanding contributions and investments made by each of these winners,” Housing and Economic Development Commissioner Andrew J. Mooney said.  “They represent a remarkable example of the dedication to restoring and revitalizing Chicago’s historic buildings and communities.”

Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA) was the architect of record for the adaptive reuse of the former Steuben Club Building into Randolph Tower City Apartments, a mixed-use residential development. HPA was also the architect of the adaptive reuse of 2800 N. Milwaukee, the former Morris B. Sachs Building, into the mixed-use Hairpin Lofts project.
