Port Chester, NY (August 14, 2006) – The restoration team for the landmark 90 West Street building in New York City was recently named a recipient of the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award, the top award in the building restoration industry. The “Lucy” award acknowledges extraordinary passion, ongoing professionalism, and outstanding projects. Seaboard Weatherproofing and Restoration and other team members were formally recognized at the 15th annual Lucy G. Moses Preservation Awards ceremony and reception at the landmark St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York City.

The Gothic landmark at 90 West Street, formerly known as the Coal & Iron Building, was designed by Cass Gilbert, who completed the building in 1907 and used it as a prototype for his taller and more famous Woolworth Building. The 24-story building’s exterior sustained severe damage to its terra-cotta façade, granite base and mansard roof from falling debris in the collapse of the nearby World Trade Center. Seaboard’s reconstruction work included replacement of 7,000 terra cotta stones on the façade, rebuilding of the first three stories of the ornate granite wall facing Ground Zero, installation of decorative gargoyles and other figures, and replacement of the copper mansard roof and roof balustrade.

“The Preservation Awards are tops in the New York area for recognizing excellence in restoration of historic buildings. We are honored to have received an award for our important role in bringing this lower Manhattan landmark back to its former glory,” said Michael Y. Ahearn, President of Seaboard Weatherproofing and Restoration. The 90 West Street restoration ranked number 14 on the New York Construction Magazine’s list of Top 20 projects 2004-2005. Because it’s a New York City Landmark, all work of 90 West Street was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which ensures that exterior restorations are historically accurate. Seaboard is recognized in the industry for its quality restoration work on historic buildings.

Seaboard Weatherproofing and Restoration is located at 530 Willett Avenue in Port Chester, NY. The Company recently celebrated their 60th anniversary in business.

The Lucy G. Moses Preservation Awards are named for a dedicated and philanthropic New Yorker who made numerous gifts to the city over a 50-year period.
