NH&RA Fall Forum (2015)

J. Timothy Anderson Awards Luncheon

The The J. Timothy Anderson Awards honor outstanding rehabilitation and preservation projects evaluating several criteria, including overall design and quality, interpretation and respect of historic elements, and market success.

The 2015 Timmy Awards will be presented at an awards luncheon on November 2, 2015 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Boston College Club, located in the Bank of America Building at 100 Federal Street, in Boston’s Financial District.

NH&RA created the “Timmy Awards” as a tribute to Boston architect and preservation advocate J. Timothy Anderson, whose 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.

Please note that there is a $125 catering fee to attend the Timmy Awards Luncheon. Registration for the Timmy Awards Luncheon is NOT included in the Fall Forum registration and needs to be purchased as a separate item.   You do not need to register for the Fall Forum to attend the Awards Luncheon; however, registration for the Luncheon is handled through the Fall Developers Forum Registration Page.
