Hunters Capital believes in retaining historic structures that create Capitol Hill’s sought after character and desirable ambience. The auto row showrooms that pepper the Pike/Pine corridor are architectural gems that require unique preservation strategies. We recognized early on that growth and redevelopment must be embraced if these historic buildings are to be kept. Working with the city and other community stakeholders, we helped create the Pike/Pine Preservation Overlay District. This special district provides incentives for property owners to keep existing “character structures” rather than tear them down. A Conservation Core was also established within the district to further ensure that new development is more compatible with the special scale and character of existing development in this critical area.
