Reactivating THE downtown landmark
"The value of New History on the delivery of our project cannot be overstated. Over time I found myself leaning, in increasing measure, on New History as a trusted member of our core team. They consistently brought clarity, advocacy, and clear navigation to the historic tax credit certification process."
