Design Review Board Awards of Merit

City Council Recognizes Exemplary Urban Design and Architecture

On December 19, 2017, the Olympia City Council approved the Design Review Board’s recommendations for two Awards of Merit. Projects considered for the award must have been reviewed by the Design Review Board, meet the Board’s most substantive recommendations, and have received a Certificate of Occupancy between 2014 and 2016. Two of twelve projects rose to the top of the list as projects that exceed the intent of the Comprehensive Plan and Municipal Design Code by providing outstanding additions to the urban fabric – adding visual interest, respecting historical styles, reflecting local values, and promoting a good pedestrian experience.
