Bapa is please to co sponsor with the Smart Growth Partnership a panel discussion about partnership projects using smarth growth principles. Applying Smart Growth Principles to historic buildings/sites that will enhance the quality of life, promote economic development, create livable communities, create a range of housing opportunities, and preserve open space. Participants will learn about the challenges of historic preservation and its unique characteristics, limited documentation, historic significance vs safety, and accessibility.
Mr. George Fletcher, Principal in Charge at Adache Architects, will present a case study of a current historic preservation project, the Great Southern Hotel, the oldest hotel in Hollywood, FL, located on the Hollywood Circle. Adache Architects is restoring the hotel to its original appearance from 1924. Mr. Fletcher will discuss the challenges encountered incorporating the structure into a new multi-use high rise building.
Ms. Leslie DelMonte, Planning Manager City of Hollywood, will provide an overview of this award winning project that encourages the use of smart growth principles by encouraging attractive and functional mixed-use to strengthen and direct development towards existing communities and encouraging stakeholder, community and regional collaboration.
