"The Cordish Company was recognized for successfully redeveloping the Albert Thomas Convention Center into Bayou Place, a theater district entertainment project. The $23 million Bayou Place is the first significant entertainment development to be completed in the last decade. Phase I of Bayou Place, which officially opened New Year’s Eve with a party of 20,000 Houstonians, totals over 180,000 square feet and is 100% leased."
"A 1917 architectural gem in Baltimore’s historic financial district has been given new life after more than 75 years of wear and abysmal commercial retrofitting. Setting a high standard for historic redevelopment, Furness House has been cured of its functional obsolescence without compromising the buildings original integrity and elegance."
"A triumph of public/private cooperation that invigorated one of the nation’s most admired cities. Charleston Place has enhanced and preserved the historic environment of Charleston."
"The project has sparked other development downtown, including a new hotel, office building, and entertainment complex. And locals report that it has been a tonic for the city, rekindling local pride."
