The 2010 B.L.E.N.D. Award is proudly sponsored by the following neighborhoods: Armatage, East Harriet Farmstead, Fulton, Kingfield, Linden Hills, Lynnhurst, Tangletown, and Windom.
The participating neighborhood associations and councils are issuing a call for submissions for the 2010 B.L.E.N.D. Award, which recognizes builders, architects, designers and property owners whose projects respect existing neighborhood design aesthetics. We have also included landscape projects as a submission category this year and are looking forward to having submissions in that category. Projects involving commercial buildings are also eligible for submission. Eligible projects include new buildings, renovation or additions to existing buildings, and landscape projects that have been completed since July 1, 2005; projects must be located within the boundaries of the participating Southwest neighborhoods. A jury of design professionals and neighborhood residents will select projects to be awarded. Recipients of the 2010 B.L.E.N.D. Award will be announced the week of Aug. 16, 2010.
There has been a change to the date and location of the awards presentation: The awards will be presented during the Fulton Neighborhood Association Annual Meeting, Wed., Oct. 13, at 7 p.m., Pershing Park, 3523 West 48th Street.
If you have a remodel, addition, new home, or landscape project completed within the last five years and your project is located in a Southwest Minneapolis neighborhood, please consider submitting this year.
