Congratulations to the 2021 Recipients!

The 2021 Eunice L. Burns Environmental Awareness Award was given to 3MISSION Partners. About 3MISSION: They are an Ann Arbor-based real estate development company that specializes in creating livable, workable, and flexible space that meets the needs of a diverse and constantly changing market area. For more than 20 years, 3mission’s principals Jon Carlson and Greg Lobdell have taken on complex real estate projects and developed a portfolio of award-winning properties. Robert Eisman is the most recent addition to the 3MISSION team.

In 1993, Jon and Greg developed portions of West Washington Street in Ann Arbor into a mixed-use property, with restaurant space on the first floor and office and residential space in the upper levels, utilizing benefits available to historic preservation and rehabilitation properties. The project was one of the first to bring loft spaces back to life, downtown. This 21,000 sqft project utilized state and federal Historic Tax Credits and helped restore abandoned buildings reclaim their original features.
