Empire Block


Empire Block Historic Rehabilitation project was proposed to conform to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings, as well as related guidance from Technical Preservation Services of the National Park Service (SOI Standards and Guidelines). The project had to meet the SOI Standards and Guidelines to qualify for historic tax credits. All rehabilitation work under this Project was to adhere to these specifications and the guidelines of the Secretary of the Interior governing it. Empire Block Historic Rehabilitation project had a scope that included historically accurate new window replacement as well as rehabilitation of the exterior facade back to the original design of the late 1800s. An extensive interior rehabilitation design that included main level retail and 2nd and 3rd floor living spaces was also a large part of MGA’s charge as well as a list of general repairs to the property including carpentry, painting, roofing, lead abatement or lead hazard reduction, masonry, and concrete work.
