September 15, 2004|By Bob Erle | Bob Erle,SUN STAFF

The Downtown Partnership announced its 2004 Downtown Baltimore Awards yesterday, recognizing eight groups and one individual. The awards recognize contributions to making downtown an attractive area for living, working and shopping.

This year's winners include Uniform City USA, a provider of uniforms to medical and hospitality professionals, for expanding and upgrading its North Howard Street location.

"They've really done a lot to make their building an attractive building, to draw people to the west side that wasn't getting a lot traffic," said Mike Evitts, the partnership's director of public relations.

The other winners were Democratic Rep. Elijah E. Cummings of Baltimore; the Baltimore Orioles; the law firms Miles & Stockbridge PC and Whiteford, Taylor & Preston; Mercy Medical Center; the Parking Authority of Baltimore City; the investment management company T. Rowe Price Group Inc.; and Yellow Transportation.

Nominations are submitted by the partnership's 500 members, and winners are chosen by the group's administrative staff.

Awards have been given every year since 1991. Previous winners include the Walters Art Museum, the Building Owners and Managers Association of Metropolitan Baltimore and the South Baltimore Homeless Shelter.
