Built in 1910, the Howard Theatre is the oldest major African American Theatre in the United States. Together with Howard Theatre Restoration, Inc., Urban Atlantic leveraged NMTCs to fund the $26 million historic restoration of the theatre. This included the full restoration of the façade to its 1910 appearance, excavation of a fully functional basement and construction of a three-story addition on the rear of the building. The Howard Theatre restoration acted as a catalyst for additional development in the neighborhood. Urban Atlantic's $5 Million Allocation leveraged over $27 Million in project costs.
