The Challenge of Building in “Old Town” Georgetown Texas

In our many years of business, we have had countless number of projects in the historical part of Georgetown Texas, better known as “Old Town”.  “Old Town” presents a unique set of challenges to builders and remodelers.

Many of the properties located in this area of Georgetown were constructed in the early part of the 20th Century and truly are “old”.

“Old Town” is situated within a City of Georgetown “overlay district” with its own particular requirements as to design compliance and regulatory oversight.

Any modifications to the exterior of an existing structure within the overlay district must be vetted and approved by the Historical and Architectural Review Committee (HARC).

Getting the necessary approvals from HARC and the City of Georgetown development office can take up to 6 months or longer so the pre-construction process can be lengthy.

Many of the old properties in “Old Town” have already been modified several times, which also adds to the challenges for remodeling in this part of town.
