Higgins Quasebarth & Partners played an integral role in the rehabilitation of the Hotel Newburgh in Orange Country, New York, a former single-room-occupancy hotel and theater now transformed into a community asset. Acting as historic tax credit consultants, HQ conducted extensive historical research on the seven building complex for Safe Harbors of the Hudson, a non-profit whose goal is to strengthen the community by providing low-income housing for residents with mental health conditions and by providing affordable live/work space to local artists. Working with OCV Architects, HQ helped guide the project through the federal historic preservation tax credit application process. HQ conducted extensive historical research in order to confirm the buildings’ historic significance and provided construction period consulting services. Hotel Newburgh now functions as a supportive housing facility with a community library which includes a computer lab used for job training.
