State historic preservation officials have cleared the way for the Hotel Northland restoration project to qualify for state tax credits.

The downtown Green Bay property now is listed on the State Register of Historic Places, after approval last week by the Historic Preservation Review Board of the Wisconsin Historical Society.

Frantz-Hobart LLC, a development group from Iowa, hopes to use tax credits to finance a $20 million-plus restoration of the former luxury hotel at 304 N. Adams St.

City economic development director Greg Flisram said the state historic listing was anticipated and is only a formality needed to ensure that the financing option is available to Frantz-Hobart.

The property now goes before the National Park Service for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, which would make the project eligible for federal tax credits, too.
