While this wasn’t included in the previous story, it should be noted that Ron Stallings was awarded Andrew Asch Historic Developer Award I quote:
For the renovation of dozens of historic properties and construction of numerous infill projects that goes beyond the role of a developer, creating – through vision and perseverance – a Renaissance in Jackson Ward.
Congratulations Ron. Here’s hoping we see some jazz concerts and classic movies at the Hippodrome soon.
