Kansas City historic preservationist Elizabeth Rosin is honored

The Kansas City chapter of the American Institute of Architects has awarded its Preservationist of the Year honor to Elizabeth Rosin, owner of Rosin Preservation.

Rosin, who is not an architect, was recognized for work this year on several adaptive reuse projects in the urban core, including the Commerce Tower, the Kansas City Power & Light Building, Roaster’s Block, Cosby Hotel, Bancroft School and the Sporting Innovations building.

Rosin Preservation also is moving into its own rehabilitated building at 1712 Holmes.
