Historic Landmarks

NK’s commitment to sustainability includes finding ways to preserve and reuse historic buildings to help neighborhoods grow by connecting the past to the future. The firm’s in-house historic consultants are experienced in assessing the condition of a site or building and providing reports with detailed recommendations for alternatives to demolition. These may include strategic plans for the rehabilitation of existing buildings, including designing an appropriate addition, reusing materials or moving historically significant buildings to new locations.

We’re also adept at navigating the historic landmark designation process in order to maintain maximum development flexibility for clients. NK’s experts assess structures, assist owners in preparing required documents for the nomination process, create historic assessments for SEPA/NEPA and help applications for federal tax credits. As a result, buildings either achieve landmark designation or efficiently pass through the process without designation.
