Historic Preservation

ADAPTIVE REUSE AND BED AND BREAKFAST INNS


Project Summary

Older middle-class neighborhoods are scattered with pockets of buildings of historical significance. Unfortunately these buildings are often surrounded by areas of dilapidation or lesser quality construction so that the neighborhoods lack the coherence necessary to develop an appropriate sense of place. However, by focussing on adaptive re-use of existing structures and infill to stabilize selected areas, strong cores might develop that can then act as catalysts for the wider neighborhood. The links below will direct you to the results of our efforts at stabilizing historic neighborhoods.
