The City of Charleston announces the winners of the third annual “The City of Charleston Award for Design Excellence.” These awards are presented by Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. and the City’s Department of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability (PP&S) at a reception and ceremony honoring the award recipients during National Design Week.

Each year there are buildings and spaces designed and built in Charleston that are of great quality and contribute to the streets and neighborhoods in the city. Although there are many buildings and places that are very successful and worthy of recognition, these annual awards are reserved for places that specifically contribute to Charleston in a manner most thoroughly in keeping with the city’s high expectations for quality architecture and design. These awards honor buildings and places that the committee believes are of the highest caliber and would be recognized as such worldwide.
