AALDC’s works alongside Atlantic Avenue store and property owners to help increase economic development through historic preservation for the Atlantic Avenue community.

By conserving the distinctive architecture and character of Atlantic Avenue we are maintaining a sense of its history and unique quality that gives people the feeling of being some place “special”.

For property owners historic preservation raises property values by making the neighborhood a more desirable destination and for merchants, it stimulates business by creating an attractive street that invites customers.
