NC Main Street Conference

This week Maurer Architecture took a trip to the NC Main Street Conference in Goldsboro. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and scenery, and were able to catch up with some old friends.

On Wednesday David led a tour of several unique large buildings in downtown Goldsboro, including a currently vacant art deco firestation, and the Terrace Room, a large event space in the former Hotel Goldsboro, built in 1924.

On Thursday David gave a presentation which outlined the process of creating upper-story residential units in historic downtown buildings. Conference attendees got step-by-step instructions on how to utilize historic tax credits, how to finance projects, and how to implement the North Carolina Existing Building Code. 

Following the presentation, Maurer Architecture led a tour through several of Goldsboro's most prominent upper-story residential buildings. The tour included the Edgerton Building (completed by Maurer Architecture in 2013), and two Maurer Architecture projects which are currently under construction.
