QA+M Architecture has been honored by The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) with a 2019 Award of Merit for the Foran Towers Revitalization project. The project was celebrated on July 11th at the annual NAHRO conference at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts.
Foran Towers is a five-story, 42-unit affordable housing development built in the mid-1960s in Milford, Connecticut. QA+M Architecture and the Milford Redevelopment & Housing Partnership collaborated on a modernization project that completely transformed the aging and deteriorating development with attractive architectural features, structural improvements, and environmental efficiencies. As a result, the project extended the life of the building by 50 years, and serves residents with an energy-efficient, safe and attractive development that complements the surrounding neighborhood.
“Congratulations to our 2019 Awards of Merit recipients,” said NAHRO President Carl S. Richie, Jr. “I am so proud of the great work they’re doing for their clients and their communities.”
The NAHRO Awards of Merit program was created 20 years ago to recognize agencies who found innovative ways of making a difference in their communities and in the lives of the people they serve by creating affordable housing, revitalizing their neighborhoods, and developing initiatives such as job readiness programs, public-private partnerships, disaster prevention projects, and more.
“The Awards of Merit catalog is more than a list of winners,” said NAHRO CEO Adrianne Todman. “It’s a yearly compendium of some of the best work being done by housers and community builders nationwide. Congratulations to this year’s honorees!”
