The coupon is only remotely affected by renovation costs. There's a 1.2% of the value of new construction added to property taxes.

If there are no plans to change the exterior why go for the historic
designation in the first place? You are just adding another level
bureaucracy that adds cost to any remodel. I don't want my coupon to go up
just so I can call Dollar a historic building.
