The mission of the Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public.
Hello Historic Resources Committee Members - We are researching precedents for towers that were built or are planned to be built above historic landmark properties to include as precedents for a similar project proposal here in Austin Texas. Current precedents include the Hearst Tower in New York City, Viceroy Building in Chicago, Opera de National in Lyon. We are also looking, in particular, for language and presentation information that was prepared for the local historic landmark commissions for approval of those developments. Any information, leads or direction you may have would be helpful. Feel free to call me at the number below if you have any questions or require additional clarification on this request.
Thank you in advance for your help with this matter,
