TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Lonnie Williams, Chairman of the Jayhawk Theatre Capital Campaign and Doug Jones, President,
Jayhawk Theatre Board of Directors, announce today that Brian Wishneff & Associates of Roanoke, Virginia was awarded the contract to manage the tax incentive process to leverage the $8.5 million Jayhawk Theatre restoration project to completion. Wishneff was selected as the best candidate from four professional firms competing for the work.
“Wishneff was a total package approach providing all aspects of maximizing funding for the project with both historic tax credits and new market tax credits and all the legalese that goes with it.” Lonnie Williams.
“Tax credits will fund the majority of the cost of restoration, making it a bargain for our community and a catalyst for downtown revitalization.” Doug Jones.
Since their inception in 1995, Wishneff has a 100% batting average on leveraging all private and public funds on restoration projects. They have leveraged over $2.5 billion of private investment and
secured over $300 million in tax credit equity.
“Because of our extensive tax credit experience and knowledge, we will present the Jayhawk Theatre project to a wide variety of local, state and national tax credit investors.” Adam Markwood, Vice
President, Preservation & Environment, Wishneff & Associates.”
