Some days ago I wrote about the grand re-opening of Garden of Gethsemane Church, an event which arguably announced the revitalization turning point for the Cottage Park area of the Jordan Neighborhood. (As you can see by the picture above, the church wasn't ALWAYS known as Garden of Gethsemane)

Now word comes the church redesign won some awards. Here is the press release, as follows:

Catalyst Community Partners is proud to announce two real estate awards of excellence for the recently completed Garden of Gethsemane Ministries Church in the Cottage Park neighborhood of North Minneapolis.

The Twin Cities Business Journal awarded the church project Best Interior Renovation - Nonprofit as part of its 2008 Best in Real Estate Awards.

In addition, the Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Commission in conjunction with the Minneapolis chapter of the American Institute of Architects and Preserve Minneapolis awarded the highly prestigious Neighborhood Preservation 2009 Heritage Preservation Award to the project.

Congratulations and thank you to all of our team members who made these awards possible, including The Garden of Gethsemane Ministries, The Ackerberg Group, Welsh Construction and the countless vendors and contractors who gave their
time and talent to create this vibrant community asset, proving once again that positive results are made "Better. Together."
