Finding the Profit in Heritage: Exploring the Development Potential of Historic Properties

Friday, October 13
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

A presentation will be provided on the outcomes and learnings of a one-day forum in St. John's NL (May 2017) intended to develop processes and principles for a more productive discourse between developers, heritage advocates, city officials, designers and other stakeholders on heritage and development.

Preserving heritage buildings often pits developers and property owners against heritage advocates and the public with municipal officials caught in the middle. It doesn’t have to be this way. A better understanding by all stakeholders of what the other needs to get out of the equation and a more transparent process for evaluating the highest and best use of heritage properties can pave the way for better outcomes and a more constructive dialogue.
