Historic Building Feasibility Study Workshop

March 13, 2019 - March 15, 2019

Pennsylvania Downtown Center (PDC) presents Donovan Rypkema, from PlaceEconomics for a 2 ½ day long hands-on workshop on the feasibility of the development and adaptive reuse of a historic building.

The workshop will be held in downtown Easton on March 13th – 15th.

The registration fee:

  • Nationally Accredited programs – FREE
  • Designated Keystone Communities (not Nationally Accredited) – $195/person
  • PDC Members who are not 2018 Nationally Accredited or currently DCED Designated Keystone Communities – $245/person
  • Non Members – $275/person

Over the course of the 2 ½ days, PlaceEconomics will lead the workshop through the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Feasibility Assessment Manual for Historic Buildings.

Participants will work in teams to work through the manual, to prepare a feasibility study, identifying factors such as: client’s objectives and constraints; legal limitations; market factors; and potential national, regional and local factors.  Other factors to consider: political factors; target market; available intervention tools; and physical and technical constraints on the project. Templates to create a project pro forma will be completed for each team.

Participants will develop skills to facilitate historic building feasibility studies with your community.
Don’t miss this opportunity – it’s been many years since Donovan has lead this workshop in Pennsylvania.

Space is limited!
