Watch This Space

At the beginning of November, the building that had stood at 211 Warren Street for two centuries or more had to be demolished.

Yesterday, a new foundation was poured at the site.

Curious to know what the plans were, since no new proposal for the site had been presented to the Historic Preservation Commission, I asked code enforcement officer Craig Haigh about it. He told me that a permit had been issued only to pour the foundation, which was necessary to stabilize the earth around the property. No further work will be done until spring, and a certificate of appropriateness will be required before that work can begin.

It seems a new building will rise in the footprint of the one that was lost.
