The Catholic Foundation Wins Aesthetic Design Award

257 East Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio
 We are proud to announce The Catholic Foundation has won the Discovery Special Improvements District (SID) award for Outstanding Aesthetic Contribution for 2010.  The new foundation headquarters, designed by Meleca Architecture, is the former home to the original Wendy's restaurant, also known as "Wendy's #1".  

The redesign kept the original Wendy's structure intact - thus promoting historic preservation while adding texture to the urban landscape.

The Discovery SID, encompassing a 37 square block area on the east side of downtown Columbus, Ohio, is a private sector corporation that was created in 2007 by property owners who wanted to improve the safety and image of the Discovery District neighborhood.
