Lord & Burnham Headquarters
Higgins Quasebarth & Partners served as historic preservation consultants to the Greyston Foundation for the rehabilitation of this nineteenth-century headquarters building of the Lord & Burnham Company which manufactured iron and glass greenhouses. HQ conducted extensive historical research which resulted in the Burnham Headquarter’s listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Working with Stephen Tilly Architects, HQ ensured that all rehabilitation work was done in compliance with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards in order to qualify the project for federal historic preservation tax credits. Today, the former Lord & Burnham Company Headquarters functions as a public library on the ground floor with twenty-two units of affordable housing above.
