Two of the awardees are in Western New York, both in the City of Buffalo and both for Excellence in Historic Rehabilitation.

One is for the Kreiner Malt House and Grain Elevator on Elk Street, which was transformed into offices, apartments and a brewery using Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits.

The other is for revitalization in the Northland Corridor Beltline project on the East Side, centered on the creation of the Northland Workforce Training Center in the former Niagara Machine and Tool Works Factory.
