Historic designations granted to buildings set for renovations

September 18, 2013

City Council approved historic designations for buildings at Canal Place that once housed Firestone Tire manufacturing operations and a century-building on Furnace Street that will become the new home for WhiteSpace Creative, an advertising, marketing, web design and public relations company. The designation reduces taxes for the developers allowing them to invest the money in building renovations.
