Maugel/Russo Project Gets Award

Award-winning Ivory Keys Apartments

Leominster, MA – The Ivory Keys Apartments, located at 140 Adams St., was recently recognized by Preservation Massachusetts.

The Ivory Keys Apartments project team accepts the Preservation Award.

Maugel Architects and L.D. Russo transformed this once-vacant historic mill building that formerly housed a piano manufacturing facility into a 41-unit affordable rental housing complex. The new design pays homage to the building’s history by preserving and repurposing original elements throughout interior spaces.

The project is the recipient of Preservation Massachusetts’ 2019 Robert H. Kuehn Preservation Award. The award recognizes extraordinary projects that meld collaborative partnerships with creative ideas for the rehabilitation and active reuse of historic buildings.

Preservation Massachusetts is the statewide nonprofit historic preservation organization dedicated to preserving the Commonwealth’s historic and cultural heritage.
