“The winners and finalists represent fourteen different communities in ten states—Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia—as well as the District of Columbia.”

“You can’t help but be awestruck by the high level of creativity that goes into re-thinking these historic structures,” says Thom Amdur, Executive Director of NH&RA. “This year’s Timmy nominees illustrate the incredible potential and community impact generated through the revitalization of our historic infrastructure.”

The “Timmy Awards” were created to honor outstanding real estate projects that involve rehabilitation of older, historic buildings, primarily using state or federal historic rehabilitation tax credits. Scoring is based on overall design and quality, interpretation and respect of historic elements, innovative approach to construction and use of building materials, impact on the community, sustainability and financial and market success of the project.”
