Another design award for Columbia Heights

Looks like the hood is doing pretty well -- in addition to a number of awards to area condo and apartment buildings, the Urban Land Institute, a big urban planning think tank, recently awarded Columbia Heights with their annual Award for Excellence.

ULI has been a fan of the neighborhood for awhile, with the City Paper noting a study they wrote awhile ago about the neighborhood, which concludes with "the phoenix has indeed risen."

NBC4 has the story too, with the added tidbit that ANC commish (and South CH Civic Association presidnet) Sedrick Muhammad notes that the Best Buy is the second busiest on the east coast.
