The Carnegie Building Atlanta, Georgia - The Jaeger Company (TJC) has completed Part 1 and Part 2 Applications for this tax credit rehabilitation project located at the intersection of Carnegie Way and Ellis Street in downtown Atlanta. With assistance from TJC, the project architect developed a rehabilitation plan for converting the historic office tower into a boutique hotel utilizing the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. By utilizing these guidelines, the project was given the approval needed to proceed with the rehabilitation and apply for the Federal RITC credit, the Georgia RITC credit and Georgia’s Preferential Property Tax Abatement program. As part of this process the building is in the process of being listed in the National Register of Historic Places as one of the few extant examples of early twentieth century office tower construction in downtown Atlanta.

Constructed in 1926, the Carnegie Building was originally known as the Wynne-Claughton Building, but was renamed the Mortgage Guarantee Building when it was purchased by the Mortgage Guarantee Insurance Company. In 1963 the name was changed to the Carnegie Building to commemorate the former Carnegie Library, which once stood across from this building on Carnegie Way. Since the building’s construction it has served as offices with retail on its first floor. The current rehabilitation of the building will continue the retail use of the first floor but will include hotel rooms on the upper floors. TJC is now assisting the owner in the Part III application, which will document the finished project and facilitate final approval of the tax credits.

Phoenix Hotel Waycross, Georgia - The Jaeger Company (TJC) assisted in the rehabilitation of the Phoenix Hotel in conjunction with the Waycross Downtown Development Authority. TJC also provided sensitive landscape design treatments for the adjacent pedestrian mall and park. Under the guidance of TJC, the building was rehabilitated utilizing the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, which allowed the owner to apply for both state and federal tax credits. The following documents were prepared by TJC - the Federal Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit; the Georgia Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit; and the Georgia Preferential Property Tax Assessment Program.

The Phoenix Hotel, a historical landmark in the commercial business district of Waycross, Georgia, was constructed in 1875. This Spanish Colonial Revival-styled structure was rehabilitated to house corporate offices for a local company on the upper floors with retail space on the ground floor.

Rose's/Orenstein Building • Gainesville, Georgia - The Jaeger Company (TJC) assisted in the rehabilitation of the Rose’s/Orenstein Building located at 108-110 Washington Street. Under the guidance of TJC, the building was rehabilitated utilizing the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. By utilizing these guidelines, the owner was able to apply for both state and federal tax credits. The following documents were prepared by TJC - the Federal Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit; the Georgia Preferential Property Tax Assessment Program; and the National Register of Historic Places Nomination for the Gainesville Downtown Commercial Historic District, which includes the Rose’s/Orenstein Building.

Built in 1880, the Rose’s/Orenstein Building is important as an attached commercial building, constructed on downtown Gainesville’s public square, during the first significant period of commercial growth in the city triggered by the coming of the railroad in 1871.

This building is one of a few commercial buildings remaining from this period and was one of the buildings damaged by the 1936 tornado and subsequently repaired. The successful rehabilitation of the Rose’s/Orenstein Building has played a key role in Main Street Gainesville's ongoing efforts to revitalize the historic downtown business district.
