Washington, D.C. (June 28, 2017) – The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) is pleased to announce the 2017 winners of its annual Golden Streets contest, a friendly competition among participating commercial properties within the 43-square-block central business district, stretching from the White House to Dupont Circle. Nineteen participating buildings created landscaping displays around the theme ‘Hot, Hot, Hot” in tree and flower boxes along sidewalks in front of their buildings.
Winners were determined by a panel of expert judges who walked the streets of the Golden Triangle to determine awards for displays that exhibit the Best in Design and Best in Sustainability. As determined by the judges, the 2017 Golden Streets award winners are:
This year’s judges included both amateur garden aficionados and professionals in the gardening, landscaping and design field:
“One of the things that makes the Golden Triangle so distinctive is that, together with our property owners, we always strive to ensure that our urban landscape is clean, safe and attractive,” said Leona Agouridis, executive director of the Golden Triangle BID. “Our neighborhood truly prides itself on being the ‘gold standard’ and Golden Streets is a fun, but important way to beautify the environment for the thousands of workers and visitors who walk and drive along our streets each day.”
The complete list of participating building entries and project titles for this year included:
To engage the broader community in the program, the Golden Triangle created a “Great Pineapple Hunt,” inviting area workers, residents and visitors to explore the Golden Streets in search of a hidden pineapple sign. Each day over a two-week span, two pineapple signs have been hidden in a different Golden Streets flower box. Those who find the pineapple signs and submitt selfies with them on social media have been entered into a drawing to win $50 gift cards to local merchant stores or restaurants.
