Landmark Buildings

The preservation and renovation of an historic property can be a starting point and anchor for the redevelopment of a neighborhood and an important part of its economic growth. A historic building or district can be a tangible symbol of a community's interest in honoring its heritage, valuing its character and sense of place, getting the most out of prior investments in infrastructure and development, and encouraging growth in already-developed areas. Rehabilitating properties can promote energy efficiency and repurposing old buildings - particularly those that are vacant - reduces the need for construction of new buildings and the consumption of land, energy, materials, and financial resources that they require.
