The New York City Landmarks Conservancy has announced that this year’s Chairman’s Award will go to Apple for its contribution to preserving and restoring notable historic structures in NYC (via iFun).
The Conservancy is recognising Apple for its four New York City stores located in historic buildings, as the company has married high tech and distinguished architecture in Grand Central Terminal (an individual New York City landmark), 103 Prince Street (in the SoHo Historic District), 401 W. 14th Street (Gansevoort Market Historic District), and 940 Madison Avenue (Upper East Side Historic District).
The Chairman’s Award was inaugurated in 1988 to recognize exceptional organizations and companies that have demonstrated their dedication to protecting New York’s rich architectural heritage, according to the Conservancy’s website.
The event will take place on Wednesday, March 9, 2016, at the Metropolitan Club located at 1 East 60th Street. Last year, the Chairman’s Award went to Dr. Michael Horodniceanu, President of MTA Capital Construction, and architect Robert A.M. Stern.
