The landmarked BankNote building in Hunts Point received her most recent accolade earlier this month at the Historic Districts Council's (HDC) 10th Annual ceremony. BankNote was one of only six individuals/organizations from all five boroughs being presented with HDC's Grassroots Preservation Award, which recognizes groups and individuals that work to preserve NYC's valuable neighborhoods.

“We are honored to receive recognition from the Historic District Council and contribute to the preservation of New York City’s rich fabric of historic buildings,” said Jonathan Denham, principal of Denham Wolf Real Estate Services. “With the guidance and expertise of Beyer Blinder Belle through the landmark and renovation process, we are thankful for the collaborative experience of working with the Landmarks Preservation Committee and Community Board 2.”

Built in 1909, The BankNote is a 405,000-square-foot, four-building office and retail complex which was formerly the home of The American Bank Note Company. The building received landmark status in February 2008. As a destination building for creative companies, office tenants and schools, BankNote's notable tenants include Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre, Sustainable South Bronx and The Lightbox-NY.

Good stuff - congrats BankNote!
