For over 90 years, the Queens Chamber of Commerce selects a spectacular location to facilitate their tradition that honors: architects, builders, engineers, lenders, interior designers and owners of buildings and building projects in Queens County, New York. This gala takes on even more significance as the Queens Chamber of Commerce held the event at the TWA Hotel the Eero Saarinen’s landmark 1962 Flight Center at JFK International Airport. Tyler Morse, President & CEO of MCR Development, who is also the owner & developer of the TWA Hotel, gave the gala’s keynote speech on the vision behind the project. The event guest of honor was New York City Department of Buildings Commissioner Melanie La Rocca, who passionately stated that she “keeps Queens in her heart” and also said “The Department of Buildings is truly a partner to each and every one of you and the work that you do, and that is a mission that I believe in.”
17 Queens County top construction projects were recognized as the annual event attracts more than 300 business, government and members of the community. Take a look at the event recipients, and the honorees at the TWA Hotel.
