Buildings and Sites

Looking to regenerate a heritage place in your community? We can help.

Buildings and Sites

Historic places matter to all of us: they are more than just reminders of our past, they are integral to who we are today, and what we can become.

  Many majestic or modest places of faith, emblematic lighthouses, local museums, and evocative industrial sites face the challenge of finding new or expanded uses.

Our approach

A sustainable approach for regenerating heritage buildings and complexes. It builds on the decades-long experience of the National Trust in leading regeneration programs in communities across the country.

Whether you are trying to save an historic place at risk, or wanting to breathe new life into an existing historic place, Cornerstone can help.

A Partnership for Places of Faith

This new collaboration between the National Trust and Faith and the Common Good, is dedicated to offering hope, inspiration and solutions to communities grappling with places of faith at risk.

Together, we bring proven strategies and training that unlock challenging situations and sites, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the social, spiritual and cultural health of the community.

We work with faith communities and their community stakeholders, who could be downsizing, growing, selling, buying or redeveloping their place of faith, who want to work with municipalities, developers and others within their community to create vitality and purpose with these special buildings.
