Location: Brooklyn, NY
Intent: EHT Traceries prepared a National Register Nomination and Historic Preservation Certification Application for the Loew’s Kings Theatre, constructed between 1928 and 1929, in pursuit of state and federal rehabilitation tax credits. EHT Traceries completed extensive research at local and national repositories and assisted the architects in the development of design solutions that would preserve the building’s character defining features while also accommodating the contemporary theater operation, and limited budget. This research also helped guide the thorough restoration work on both the interior and exterior of the building. EHT Traceries also coordinated consultation with the State Historic Preservation Office and the National Park Service to ensure consistency of the plans and specifications with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. The project opened to the public in early 2015 and received its HPCA Part 3 certification in August of 2015.
