Riverwalk Mill Building Honored
Lupoli Companies has received a Paul & Niki Tsongas Award from Preservation Massachusetts
Stretching from One Union Street to 280 Merrimack Street, the Wood Worsted Mill building, was honored at the Preservation Massachusetts’ Annual Preservation Awards Dinner. At theFairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, Mayor of the City of Lawrence, Dan Rivera presentedthis special award to Sal Lupoli, CEO and President of Lupoli Companies.
Since 1988, the Preservation Awards have recognized the very best in historic preservation effort and achievement in the Commonwealth. In response to this year’s theme “Preservation Is…” Sal Lupoli reflected back on the advice that Mayor Menino had given him years before. He had inspired Sal to harness the power of preservation to give the people who live in Lawrence opportunities to achieve success through job creation, economic improvements and community outreach. “As a local developer, we can have a real impact and promote change in Lawrence. By creating change, you create new taxes and new jobs and that translates to better neighborhoods and more self-pride for all residents and business owners,” says Sal.
And that sentiment is echoed by Jim Igoe, president of Preservation Massachusetts, “Preservation is about more than just a building, it is about relationships, making the old new and relevant again, recycling, up-cycling and sustainability, breathing life back into our community centers and neighborhoods, providing services and activating appreciation and pride in the places we call home. Each of this year's awardees does just that.”
Congratulations to the Lupoli Companies team as well as all of our tenants, whether you live here, work here or play here, you make this a great place to be.
