TPIAwardsImageRestoration/Rehabilitation

  • Residential buildings built before 1964
  • Commercial buildings built before 1964
  • Structures: bridges, monuments, sculptures, etc. before 1964

The guidelines for the awards include consideration of sensitivity to the historic integrity of the site following the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Historic Rehabilitation. Preference is given to exterior restoration projects that exemplify Tampa Bay’s cultural, historical, and architectural heritage. The evaluation focuses on whether the significant features of the building are retained, whether changes are compatible with the architectural style of the building and whether original materials are restored or replaced with similar kind and finish. Although the building need not be renovated to “museum quality,” review will be based on the overall quality of the renovation taking into consideration that a building may be adapted for modern life while remaining true to its architectural style. Review will consider not only the building but also the site including outbuildings, fencing, paving materials and landscaping.
