Bringing strategy, equity, and experience to historic building development.

MacRostie Historic Advisors (MHA) is the nation’s leading specialist in historic tax credits. We help developers navigate complex tax application processes and ease the path to additional equity for historic rehabilitation projects. After successfully completing thousands of historic tax credit projects, we have the expertise and the relationships within the historic tax credit community to help projects draw every available dollar.


“From start to finish, the MacRostie team provided amazing support in helping us deliver on this award-winning historic project. We benefited greatly from their guidance and insights in getting us through the complexities of historic tax credit approvals in a multi-use, multi-tenant building.”

Baum Revision LLC

“We heard that MHA is the best in the business and now we know it is true. They provided expert guidance and strategy to navigate the layers of local, state, and federal approvals to obtain historic tax credits and other financial incentives for our Wrigley Building project. MHA is our go-to consultant for historic rehabilitation projects.”

Zeller Development Corporation

“We have had the pleasure to work with MacRostie on several projects. On each one, they dive in deep to understand what the potential issues and requirements are likely to be during the design process. For the more difficult situations, their relationships and trust with the SHPO staff is critical to manage productive conversations. The redevelopment of the Rosenwald required MacRostie's expertise and guidance throughout to troubleshoot throughout the design and construction processes.”

Lightengale Group

“For Evergreen Real Estate Group’s first major historic adaptive reuse project, the former St. Charles Hospital in Aurora, the team at MHA worked seamlessly with our project partners to ensure a smooth, efficient and cost-effective path to historic certification. The project has won numerous historic preservation awards – thanks, in large part, to MacRostie. We believe repeat business is the best testimonial, and we have worked with MacRostie on all of our historic reuse projects since 2017.”
