The Conservancy was very pleased to present the Chairman’s Award to Apple for their contribution to preserving, restoring, and repurposing notable historic structures in New York City. Christopher Peak, Senior Director, Head of Retail Design & Direct Sourcing for Real Estate and Development accepted the award for Apple.

Apple has placed four New York City stores in historic buildings – marrying high tech and distinguished architecture in Grand Central Terminal (an individual New York City landmark), 103 Prince Street (SoHo Historic District), 401 W. 14th Street (Gansevoort Market Historic District), and 940 Madison Avenue (Upper East Side Historic District).

The Landmarks Conservancy inaugurated the Chairman’s Award in 1988 to recognize exceptional organizations and companies that have demonstrated their dedication to protecting New York’s rich architectural heritage.
