Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Olivia Apartment building, Joplin, Missouri
Old apartment building nominated for register

By Melissa Dunson
Joplin Globe (MO)

The historic Olivia Apartment building at 320 Moffet Ave. is one step 
closer to returning to its former glory as one of Joplin’s most 
luxurious structures after a Friday meeting of the state Historic 
Preservation Council.

The council unanimously approved the Olivia's nomination, and will pass 
it on to the National Park Service for final approval. The National Park 
Service has up to 45 days to decide whether the property will be added 
to the National Register of Historic Places, but Sue Holst, Department 
of National Resources public information officer, said the vast majority 
of the time the federal committee approves the state’s recommendation.


The Olivia will also qualify to receive cost reimbursements via the 
Brownfield Tax Incentive program from the federal Department of Economic 
Development. Springfield developer Matt Miller received nearly $200,000 
in Brownfield tax credits last fall for his Joplin project to renovate 
the old Howsmon/Christman building at Fifth and Main streets into 
apartments and retail space. The Brownfield credits pay to remove 
hazardous substances like asbestos and lead-based paint from buildings.
