Do you know of an outstanding preservation project that deserves recognition, or maybe one that you have done? If so, then nominate it for the 2017 Preservation Achievement Awards, to be presented in May.

Each year, Preservation Dallas presents the Preservation Achievement Awards to a select group of individuals, organizations, and businesses for projects involving the preservation, rehabilitation, and enhancement of Dallas’ historic buildings and neighborhoods.

“The Preservation Achievement Awards are a great way to recognize the outstanding preservation projects that have taken place and the efforts that the owners go through to preserve an important part of Dallas’ built history,” said David Preziosi, Executive Director of Preservation Dallas. “We are grateful to them for saving a piece of Dallas’s past for its future.”

Now is the time to make your nominations for the 18th annual awards. Award nominations are being accepted for:

  • 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.
  • New construction/infill in a historic neighborhood. This can include an addition directly attached to a building, or an entirely new building (infill) that enhances the historic nature of the original building or streetscape or urban environment.
