The goal of the project is to restore and complete this historic site at the corner of West Newton Street with a 15-suite complex. All permits have been obtained and construction, which will be completed in November, has started. There will be a 10’ landscaped set back that will include new fencing. The cellar stairs fronting on West Newton will be removed, and a caretaker’s apartment created in the basement with light from window wells. Piles for the filled-in section of the building will be drilled and completed in February. Monthly rates might be between $2&3K. Valet, but no on-site, parking will be available. The name of the residence has not yet been established.
