In Praise of Preservation

November 10, 2011

Jenkins•Peer Architects received a double shot of good news at this year’s Blast for the Past Awards, sponsored by Historic Charlotte, Inc.  The firm’s renovation of Charlotte Country Club was recognized with a preservation award in the commercial category; and a second J•PA renovation, Tryon Plaza, earned an honorable mention in the same category.

The awards ceremony was held on October 12th at the North Carolina Dance Theatre in Charlotte and was hosted by Bob Bertges of Wells Fargo Real Estate. We were delighted to share the evening with our clients from Charlotte Country Club and The Simpson Organization, owners of Tryon Plaza.

The preservation and revitalization of historic architecture has always been an especially rewarding part of our firm’s mission, and we’re grateful to Historic Charlotte for the work they do to preserve the history and character that distinguish our community.
