Passionate about Downtown Macon Revitalization
As a law firm located in the heart of Downtown Macon, we are both excited about the progress of revitalization and passionate about getting involved. One of our associates, Taylor Broun, recently moved to Macon and jumped right in with Historic Macon.
“I wanted to be a part of the preservation of the city. Working with my firm, Spivey, Pope, Green and Greer, I have the privilege of helping in the revitalization of downtown by working with developer clients to rehabilitate historic buildings in Macon by using the state and federal historic tax programs,” he said. Historic Macon plays an instrumental role the development of the historic districts in Macon and in the promotion and facilitation of the state and federal tax credits to developers in order to encourage further development and preservation of our city.”
Since its introduction in 1976, the federal historic tax credit has become a primary impetus of real estate investment and community revitalization in historic city areas. Our team has handled all types of tax-driven real estate investments, including historic rehabilitation tax credit transactions. As our economy begins to recover, the need for expert counsel in this area will continue to grow as smart investors take advantage of the opportunities afforded by historic tax credits.
“The revitalization of downtown as a whole is giving Macon a new energy and life while preserving the history of the city for future generations to come. I look forward to seeing the positive changes that will happen in the next few years,” Broun commented.
We are especially excited about the renovation of Second Street in Downtown Macon. According to the Telegraph in a recent article, “the project is a “vision block” for eventual plans to convert all of Second Street, revamped from a six-lane-wide stretch of pavement into a more bike-, pedestrian- and transit-friendly space. There will be just two travel lanes for cars, plus improved sidewalks, bike lanes, reverse angle parking, landscaping, shade trees, benches, an irrigation system, and a space for a future trolley system that could run along Second Street, connecting Mercer University to east Macon.”
