ST. PETERSBURG — The city’s leading preservation organization has honored 22 people, programs and structures that have contributed to St. Petersburg’s appearance, character and charm. City Council member Darden Rice was presented St. Petersburg Preservation’s President’s Award for her consistent support of the organization’s goals.And four awards went to honorees in historic African American neighborhoods.
The catered awards event was held at the St. Petersburg Woman’s Club last week. Bob Jeffrey, a previous winner, was honored in the Multi-Family Restoration or Rehabilitation category. Jeffrey’s project in Historic Kenwood almost always produces laughter at the mention of its name: the Costa Lotta Apartments.
