Mayor Nutter channeled Bon Jovi to sing the praises of historic preservation at the recent ribbon-cutting for the Presser Senior Apartments, a 2011 Preservation Achievement Award recipient: “Given the incredible history of this city, you have to pay attention to preservation,” he said. “You have to hold on to what you have.”

Accident?  The former Presser Home for Retired Music Teachers and the adjacent Nugent Home were both saved from demolition by concerned neighbors in 2005.  Presser is the first to be rehabilitated into senior housing, and with 200 people on a waiting list for the 45-unit building, the Nugent Home shouldn’t be far behind.  So yes, Mr. Nutter, we’re half way there.
