Winning projects this year included the conversion of a former department store in downtown Oneonta into a commercial and residential complex and the rehabilitation of former Public School 109 for affordable housing for artists in New York City.

Other winners are the Academy Lofts in Albany, Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, the New York State Barge Canal Historic District, Suffolk Theater in Riverhead and the West Point Foundry in Cold Spring.
