TULSA – Manhattan Construction Co. has been awarded the Tulsa Preservation Award in recognition for outstanding accomplishments contributing to the preservation of the city’s extensive heritage through stewardship and advocacy for the historic renovation of the Robinson Packer Lofts project.

The Robinson Packer Lofts is an 85-year old historical building is located in the Brady District of Tulsa.  The project included extensive and precise demolition of the interior. The project included 12-living units, with 4 studios, 2 one-bedroom and 2 two-bedroom lofts.
