2005 EDD Awards
2005 Excellence in Economic Development Planning Award
Alexandria Economic Development Partnership
The 2005 Excellence in Economic Development Planning Award was presented to the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership for their U.S. Patent and Trademark office development. The USPTO project met the criteria for its quality, originality and comprehensiveness of design, as well as its implementation and contribution to the community. The project has transformed a nearly vacant former rail yard into the world's intellectual property gateway and a thriving center for commerce, retail and residential opportunities.
