Council hears Landmark presentation

A company that specializes in turning historic buildings into viable living space is looking at putting its expertise to work on some buildings in the Town of Pulaski.
Rex Todd, president of Todd Development Inc., an affiliate of The Landmark Group, gave a presentation to members of the Pulaski Town Council Tuesday night.
According to its web site, The Landmark Group specializes in downtown renewal by partnering with public and private entities to develop “multifamily housing and mixed-use commercial projects…from adaptive reuse of historically significant structures to new construction.”
The group has developed more than $350 million in properties through adaptive reuse and new construction. It oversees the projects through development, construction and management of the completed property.
Todd said Landmark is “looking for assistance from the town to make (their proposed Pulaski projects) happen.” He said there are a number of ways the town can assist, whether through financial investment or waiver of building permit or other fees.
Asked what buildings Landmark has looked at in Pulaski, Todd said the Jackson Building on West Main Street, the Dalton Building and the former Appalachian Power building across the street from it, the Virginia Foods building, the Virginia Woodworks building and Jefferson School.
Councilman Joel Burchett Jr. said it “appears the price tag to tear down (some of the buildings Todd mentioned) would be comparable to investing with these guys.”
Mayor Jeff Worrell said the cost to tear down some of the buildings Todd mentioned would “far exceed” an investment with Landmark.
