Historic Consulting / Adaptive Reuse & Historic Preservation

When the Jackson Building became available in 2012 after many unsuccessful redevelopment attempts AWH was engaged to perform a Value Analysis to review the options for the building including a Condition Assessment, Fit Plans and Historical Review. The team decided to move forward and, partnering with ESG and Mike Gordon, Assoc. AIA (now with AWH), Alpha Theory, Aparium, and Fe Equus, the Jackson Building was transformed into the uber chic Hewing Hotel. The project is a shining jewel at the gateway to the Historic North Loop and an excellent example of how historic preservation, adaptive reuse and design can successfully work together.
