Community Revitalization Awards

The Richardson City Council created the Community Revitalization Awards to recognize property owners who have enhanced the community by making significant exterior improvements to their properties, which have, in turn, had a positive impact on the surrounding area.

Both residential and non-residential projects are eligible for consideration. Over 250 properties have been recognized since the Program’s inception in 1994. Recipients are recognized by the City Council with a reception and award presentation ceremony held in February of each year.

The 2018 Community Revitalization Awards received 25 nominations with three (3) non-residential and fourteen (14) residential projects receiving recognition.

Shaddock Caldwell Builders & Developers • 105 E. Main Street

Originally built in 1909, this downtown building was once the home of the Ritz Theater. After seeing a few name and format changes, the theater closed in 1972 and has been business offices since. The renovation removed the paint from the brick, exposing where the marquee sign was once mounted. A paneled façade and painted brick frames the windows and new door, providing a formal face to the building. The awning creates a pedestrian scale shelter from the elements and the simply lettered business signage is uplit.
