The Historic Quincy Business District was honored twice at the recent annual meeting of Illinois Main Street.
One award was for Outstanding Innovation which recognized the Shop Downtown Quincy dot org website.
The second honor went to Austin Properties as the Outstanding Property Owner.
Austin Properties owns 17 buildings in the downtown area and over 50 throughout the city.
The award recognizes that Austin's properties are well maintained and have become the Gold Standard for property development in the community.
Bret Austin said the company recognizes that they would not be where they are without other people who have started businesses in the current economic climate and be successful.
Austin said “that’s what’s made us successful is that all those people have invested in us as we try to invest in them.
Both HQBD and Austin Properties were again recognized during a presentation Friday morning at Krazy Kakes in the district.
