Joe Edwards, the man many say is behind the revitalization of the Delmar Loop, was recognized for his work.
The Landmark Association honored Edwards with a lifetime achievement award. The group is citing his preservation and rehabilitation work on the Loop. Edwards owns Blueberry Hill and is responsible for bringing the Walk of Fame, Pageant, and Moonrise Hotel to the area. He also rehabbed a dozen buildings, filled them with boutique retailers, and restored the Tivoli Theater.
Edwards received the award September 12.
