During its 65th Annual Conference and Tradeshow on October 29th in Baltimore, MD, the International Downtown Association (IDA) recognized the Garment District Alliance (GDA) with the Downtown Achievement Pinnacle Award for our role in helping to usher in a 2018 zoning change across our neighborhood.
The award was accepted by our President, Barbara Blair, at an awards ceremony at Batlimore's historic Hippodrome theater.
Throughout the zoning process, the Garment District Alliance worked with public officials, apparel industry stakeholders and constituents to develop a comprehensive plan allowing for diverse business opportunities while ensuring the area remains a hub for American fashion.
Each year, IDA recognizes outstanding projects as winners of the Downtown Achievement Awards which identify improvements to urban centers by dedicated organizations around the globe. The industry’s highest recognition, the Pinnacle Award, represents the most creative and inspiring innovations in urban place management. The Garment District Alliance’s rezoning won in the category of Economic and Business Development.
