Challenges and Opportunities when Redeveloping School Buildings

School buildings elicit strong associations for the public. Not only are they structures that housed you or your children for many years of learning, they serve as community anchors and create a strong sense of place within a community. However, many historic schools have been shuttered, making them targets for redevelopment. One of the most common building types rehabilitated using the historic tax credit (HTC), schools present an interesting set of challenges and opportunities for redevelopment.
