The Cooper Wins Residential Construction Excellence AwardDecember 12, 2022
Development Manager, BPGS Construction was awarded the Residential Construction Excellence Award for The Cooper at the Construction Excellence Awards from the Delaware Contractors Association at the 51st Annual Meeting held on Thursday, October 28th at the Chase Center in Wilmington.
The Cooper, a 92-unit multifamily residential community on Lower Market Street in Wilmington, DE, pays tribute to the former Cooper Furniture Store that previously occupied the site at 212 N Market Street in the 1950s with its iconic sign on King Street. The design of the present-day Cooper honors the rich history of the location by refurbishing the original cast-iron façade built in 1874 by Royer Brothers of Philadelphia. This project combined the former Cooper Furniture building with several other parcels that were unfit for modern use to introduce a vibrant apartment community with a stunning courtyard reminiscent of Scandinavian architecture and rooftop deck overlooking Market Street.
