Adaptive Reuse

Extending back to the 1980s, Principal Eric Hovee has worked with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and its
National Main Street Center together with affliliated states across the eastern, mid-western and western U.S. (including Walla Walla WA - as with the reuse of the Marcus Whitman to the glory days of its youth - pictured above).




Preserving history is good.
Finding economically viable uses for historical structures is even better. 

EDH articulated a financially feasible path for redevelopment of the landmark Marcus Whitman Hotel in Walla Walla WA (pictured), when no one else thought it could be done.

We have also conducted financial due diligence for renovation of an historic armory as the home for Portland Center Stage, the first historic renovation of a performing arts venue in the world to achieve a Platinum LEED Certification. 

In Vancouver WA, services have included market and financial feasibility analysis for Officers Row and the Vancouver Barracks - all part of the Fort Vancouver National Reserve Trust. We have even had a hand in evaluating options for adaptive reuse of historic farm structures in Iowa's Amana Colonies.
