Maybe you didn’t hear the great news yet… But one of our recently completed construction projects this school year won the 2014 DC Review Board Chair’s Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation at DAR Constitution Hall. Office of Planning partnered with the DC Preservation League and the Daughters of the American Revolution on this event.
“Historic preservation allows the District of Columbia to grow and prosper while honoring and respecting the places and neighborhoods that enrich the fabric of our city,” said Mayor Gray. “Historic preservation is a driving force in the development and growth of the District. This year’s award winners represent an investment of over $187 million in historic districts and landmarks across our city.”
Awardees include a small homeowner project in LeDroit Park, transformation of long-vacant properties along the burgeoning commercial corridor of 14th Street, NW rehabilitation and expansion of a signature corner in Chinatown, rehabilitation of the landmark Cardozo High School, and recognition of efforts at St. Elizabeth's for both an archaeological project and the preparation of a handsome history book of the campus.
The Historic Preservation Review Board Chair’s Award adds to the many other awards that our construction project projects have received and is another reminder that what we do is making a difference in the lives of District residents and visitors. And it is always an honor to be recognized for the amazing facilities that we build to elevate the District of Columbia Government’s educational and recreational facilities. highlighting our amazing design and construction of Cardozo Education Campus, below:
