The symposium will focus on adaptive reuse and will bring together professionals with historic preservation expertise in the areas of real estate development, economics, and urban planning. Adaptive reuse has become an important focus for the College of Design and indeed for historic preservation efforts in Lexington and the Commonwealth. The symposium will foster what we hope will be a productive exchange of ideas by bringing together national, regional and local experts to discuss adaptive reuse best practices.
