The Radiant Lily
Named Finalist TDAP's Awards Program

(September 14, 2015 pda) Austin, Texas - The Radiant Lily in Downtown Plainview (731 Broadway) was named a Best Renovation/Rehabilitation finalist of the 2015 Texas Downtown Association (TDA) President's Awards Program.

Since 1998, the Awards Program has recognized more than 150 projects, events and people that make a difference in Texas downtowns. The categories are divided based on populations of over and under 50,000 inhabitants.

The Best Renovation/Rehabilitation category recognizes excellence in rehabilitation of the interior or exterior of an existing building. The other finalists in this category & population group are Stephenville's First National Bank Building and Sulphur Springs' City Hall/1914 Post Office.

Judging for the awards took place on Friday, September 11, in Austin. The distinguished jury panel included the following representatives: Darren Drewitz, Mind Ecology; Chet Garner, The Daytripper; Becky Kauffman, Historic Waxahachie, Inc.; Emily Little, Clayton & Little Architects; and Kate Singleton, Preservation Austin. Winners will be announced on November 5 at the President's Awards Luncheon held in conjunction with the 2015 Texas Downtown Development and Revitalization Conference in Waxahachie.

"The Radiant Lily is an excellent example of how an entrepreneur can take a building, repurpose it for modern use with historical elements and retain the character of the building," said Melinda Brown. "Stephanie and her crew did a fantastic job with her renovation and I am excited that she is being recognized for all her hard work."

The Texas Downtown Association, established in 1985, is an independent, statewide nonprofit organization comprised of over 450 members involved in downtown and commercial district revitalization projects. TDA provides resources to members through networking opportunities, marketing, education and advocacy to achieve community goals. To learn more, visit www.texasdowntown.org.
