Preservation Achievement Awards

Our annual Preservation Achievement Awards allowed us to share and honor inspiring preservation projects and people involved in preservation in the Dallas community.

Categories included Rehabilitation or Adaptive Use of a residential historic building; Rehabilitation or Adaptive Use of a commercial, institutional, or mixed-use building; Rehabilitation of a Historic Landscape, Park or other Historic Resource; and New Construction/Infill in a historic neighborhood that may include an addition directly attached to a building; or an entirely new building (infill) which enhances the historic nature of the original building, streetscape or urban environment.
