Congratulations to the Eisenbrauns & Severs for Winning Landmarks “Most Enhanced” Awards

Last night Landmarks Association of St. Louis presented their 2012 Most Enhanced Awards to the 11 properties in the St. Louis area deemed to have been the best rehabilitation projects completed in the past year (in addition to one other project this year that was an example of high quality new construction).  We are pleased to announce that 2 of the historic rehabs recognized last night were properties in Old North:

  • 1413-15 Hebert, owned by Dave & Debbie Eisenbraun, and
  • 3240 N. 19th Street, owned by Heidi & Ben Sever
Congratulations to Dave, Debbie, Heidi and Ben for all of your hard work, determination, and commitment to Old North!

We’ve told the story here a few times before (including in this post from August 2008) about how Heidi and Ben rescued this crumbling pile of rubble from near extinction as a seriously deteriorated Land Reutilization Authority (LRA)-owned shell, but you can always read the whole story on their blog at www.3walls.net.

In accepting the award, both Ben and Heidi were very gracious in thanking all of the wonderful neighbors from Old North who came out to welcome them to the neighborhood and to help them on the very first day they showed up to clean out the rubble and debris inside the long-abandoned house.  And Heidi invited all attendees to come on out to see how cool Old North is these days.

Congratulations again to this year’s winners!  With the addition of two more awardees, Old North has solidified its place as the neighborhood with the most “Most Enhanced” Award-winning projects as a percentage of total buildings (and that’s the story we’re sticking with until someone can prove us wrong) or at least the neighborhood with the most award-winning projects per capita!
