Open to the Public
The annual Historic Properties Workshop will feature an interactive program that will take participants on a tour of two landmarked properties that have had to mitigate against the effects of rising waters. Starting at the Preservation Foundation headquarters, participants will receive a brief history of the topography and development of Worth Avenue and Golfview Road from Dr. Jane Day. Participants will then have an opportunity to visit two landmarked properties whose owners have utilized unique engineering solutions to protect the historic buildings. At 9 Golfview Road, architects Anne Fairfax and Richard Sammons, will demonstrate a flood gate designed to prevent flooding within the property lines. At the Everglades Club, the lead rehabilitation team, will discuss the techniques used to raise the building in order to protect it.
The workshop is limited to sixty people and no jeans of any color are permitted. Please wear sensible shoes.
