Farmington, CT – QA+M Architecture has been honored by The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) with a 2019 Award of Merit for the Foran Towers Revitalization project.

Foran Towers is a five-story, 42-unit affordable housing development built in the mid-1960s in Milford. The project was celebrated at the annual NAHRO conference on July 11 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel in Boston, Mass.

QA+M Architecture and the Milford Redevelopment & Housing Partnership collaborated on a modernization project that completely transformed the aging and deteriorating development with attractive architectural features, structural improvements, and environmental efficiencies. As a result, the project extended the life of the building by 50 years, and serves residents with an energy-efficient, safe and attractive development that complements the surrounding neighborhood.

The NAHRO Awards of Merit program was created 20 years ago to recognize agencies who found innovative ways of making a difference in their communities and in the lives of the people they serve by creating affordable housing, revitalizing their neighborhoods, and developing initiatives such as job readiness programs, public-private partnerships, disaster prevention projects, and more.
