The Queens Chamber of Commerce honors Pistilli's perspicacity and drive at its 95th annual Building Awards dinner this year. Pistilli Riverview East is one of seven buildings deemed winners in the Rehab category, sharing the honor with a single-family residence, a bank branch office, a senior adult center, a branch of the Queens Borough Public Library, an MTA subway maintenance shop and car washing facility and the Visitor and Administration Center at the Queens Botanical Garden.
Even though the folks at Astorians are saying the walls are made of styrofoam?
Pistilli Building Receives Chamber Honors
Ten other buildings will be cited as winners in the category assigned to buildings of new construction. Those buildings include the Cambria Heights branch of the Queens Library, a fast-food restaurant, a multi-family low-rise residence, an office building, a single-family residence, a residential treatment center, a multi-family high-rise building, a mixed-use building that holds residential and commercial space, a Marriott motel and the interior of a building in Bayside.
I wish they had sent out photos of the rest of the buildings so we could have a good laugh. QCC criterion for selection seems to be "the uglier the building, the more we like it."
