The Cleveland History Days Historic Preservation Showcase will tell the story of the Superior Avenue Historic District. This unique arts district is on the east end of downtown north of Cleveland State University. The current redevelopment has used multiple historic preservation tools including the federal and state historic tax credits as well as historic conservation easements. Tour will include stops at multiple historic structures showcasing development in arts, commercial and residential projects.
Key projects complete in this district include: Tower Press and GBX Headquarters, a future potential historic rehabilitation in the Artcraft Building. Topics to be covered include the process through which these tools are accessed and applied to historic adaptive reuse projects, potential challenges in their implementation, and common misconceptions about the programs.
A reception with complimentary beer, wine and light hors d’oeuvres will follow the tour, allowing for more casual follow-up discussion with speakers and other participants. Attendance limited to 75 people. AIA Continuing Education: 2 hours of HSW Learning units.
Sponsored by Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation, Co-Sponsored by AIA Cleveland and Cleveland Restoration Society. (3 CHB points)
