1905 Heinz Cut Glass Factory Determination of Eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places
The 1905 Heinz Cut Glass Factory in St. Charles, Ill had been approved for demolition in the fall of 2022. To save the building, I contacted a local developer who I knew had experience rehabilitating historic buildings. He and two partners were able to negotiate the purchase of the building and began to make plans for its rehabilitation.
Believing the building could be eligible for federal and state tax credits and could be used to lower their construction costs, I received permission from the owners to submit a Determination of Eligibility (DOE) for the National Register of Historic Places to the Illinois State Historic Preservation Office (ILSHPO).
On April 4, 2023, ILSHPO responded with a favorable determination. The building owners are now considering whether the requirements of the federal and state tax credits will be financially beneficial and compatible with their rehabilitation plans.
