Our Vision

Innovative Projects

The International Downtown Association recognizes outstanding projects through the Downtown Achievement Awards which identify improvements to urban centers by dedicated organizations around the globe. The Pinnacle Award, the industry’s highest honor, represents the most creative and inspiring innovations in the industry. These innovative projects set the new standard for improving cities worldwide. IDA members continue to champion livable, vital and thriving urban centers, and each award-winning project has made a demonstrable impact on its city and the people who live, work and play in the urban center.
