Over the past two decades, no firm or institution in America has conducted more analyses of the economic impacts of historic preservation than has PlaceEconomics. Beginning in Virginia in 1995 with the first statewide study of the impacts of preservation, we have prepared impact analyses in over a dozen states. Recently, we have expanded the types of studies we are able to provide to include analysis of affordable housing, deconstruction, and resiliency. Find our studies below.
