People’s Choice Award

12 Ave Arts has been selected as a finalist in the city’s first People’s Choice Urban Design Awards mid-rise category. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer project: it’s one of the only Capitol Hill developments in recent years to provide housing for low-income residents. You can vote for your favorite project here (nudge, nudge). See it here.

They found money in the trash
