The National Housing & Rehabilitation Association celebrated the winners of the 7th Annual J. Timothy Anderson Awards for Excellence in Historic Rehabilitation at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 at the Bank of America Building in Boston, MA.
Fondly referred to as “The Timmys,” the awards honor outstanding rehabilitation and preservation projects based on several criteria, including overall design and quality, interpretation and respect of historic elements, and market success. NH&RA created the “Timmy Awards” as a tribute to Boston architect and preservation advocate J. Timothy Anderson. “Anderson was a singular figure in the preservation industry pioneering the adaptive reuse of historic buildings,” said Peter Bell, Executive Director of the National Housing & Rehabilitation Association and a close personal friend of Anderson’s. His legacy includes numerous Boston area projects as well as the seminal study that helped launch preservation efforts in the art deco South Beach district of Miami Beach in the late ‘70s.
