What a difference a few years makes!
Three years after being placed on the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation's list of the "10 Most Endangered Buildings in Connecticut," three prized commercial buildings in the heart of New Haven's Ninth Square National Register Historic District have been brought back from the brink.
PMC Property Group has transformed the buildings into apartments, using Historic Tax Credits and following Department of Interior Standards for Rehabilitation.
In July 2008, The New Haven Urban Design League and the New Haven Preservation Trust rallied to save the three commercial buildings in the heart of the ninth Square Historic District. Through press conferences, petitions and work with the City of New Haven Building Department and City Plan Department, the loss of the buildings was averted.
Come see and celebrate the results!
Thanks to Doug Hitchner, Project Manager, PMC Property Group, for opening the work to the public.
