Winter Conditions No Matter for Hyde Park Project Team

After many months of planning, we are pleased to announce that the Vertullo Building storefront rehabilitation has at last begun.  Try as we might to have all of the pieces into place so that we could begin the work in the warm weather,  it didn’t work out that way and our contractor, MJ Mawn and his team had to bundle up to begin demolition this week in the snow.  Fortunately, we anticipate the work to only take a couple of months, barring any unforeseen complications.

The attached rendering shows the storefronts returning to an appearance similar to their original 19th century look.  More glass, restored transoms, and elegant lighting and hardware are all part of the plan, as well as improved heating and air conditioning.  We look forward to sharing our progress in the weeks to come and a final unveiling for all, perhaps in the spring after exterior painting can be completed.  Three of the five “new” storefronts will be available to rent in March.  Please contact us if you or a business you know might be interested in moving in!
