We trace our history back to 1982 when M. Pres Kabacoff and Edward B. Boettner (1933-2000) founded Historic Restoration, Incorporated and began purchasing, redeveloping and reimagining historic properties in New Orleans. From these beginnings, Historic Restoration grew to become a leader in the creation and enhancement of diverse, vibrant and sustainable urban communities through the adaptive restoration of historic buildings, redevelopment of public housing and development of affordable housing. The company continued to build a team of real estate professionals experienced in sourcing, developing, acquiring, financing, designing and managing the construction of real estate projects, as well as managing hotel and apartment properties.
In 2014, we separated our business from the affordable housing business that was being, and continues to be, conducted by Historic Restoration. As part of that process, we agreed to provide, on an exclusive basis, design, development, property management and administrative services to Historic Restoration.
