HHC stands behind the philosophies of historic preservation and new urbanism as strong mechanisms to effect present and future quality of life, sense of place, and economic development.
The founding principals have stood true to these philosophies working to acquire and rehabilitate historic properties located in established communities. In addition, HHC concentrates investment within areas embracing the creative economy: new ideas as the source of personal satisfaction. This major cultural shift and long-term smart-growth strategy continues to change retailing, entertainment, and livable places where people prefer to work, invent, and produce.
HHC has completed projects utilizing both federal and state historic rehabilitation tax credits. In addition to a favorable ROI, HHC works with non-profit preservation organizations and learning institutions to facilitate engagement by making available certain properties for exploration and study.
