Community Heritage Partners

Our Story

We base our work on a fundamental belief, drawn from years of study and experience, that there is something special about almost everywhere. This leads us to the conviction that with the right approach to design, almost every place can become someplace special.

The Work We Do

Community Heritage Partners uses architecture, planning, urban design, historic preservation, and real estate strategies to develop innovative design solutions and find new active uses for under-utilized properties and older buildings.

Architectural Projects

Our expertise applies to a wide variety of architectural and design projects. Our specialties include civic and cultural design, museums and historical sites, religious design and residential design.

West King: Past & Future
