Caltagirone applauds Wolf administration for tax credits

HARRISBURG, June 18 – State Rep. Thomas Caltagirone, D-Berks, today thanked Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration for its support of rehabilitation projects in Berks County.

“These Historic Preservation Tax Credits will go a long way toward rehabilitating a vacant office building, and turning a separate industrial building into apartments for local artists,” Caltagirone said. “I want to thank Governor Tom Wolf, Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin, and Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission Executive Director Andrea Lowery for putting our communities first and investing in projects that will revitalize historic spaces and create new opportunities right in our district.”

A $200,000 tax credit has been awarded to Thomas A. Willson Co. in Reading, to rehabilitate an industrial building into apartments for artists in the GoggleWorks complex.

Another $50,000 tax credit has been allocated to Corbit Brothers Building in Reading, to upgrade an office building in the Callowhill Historic District.
