Construction Watch: Main and Ferry

In an earlier version of  this post I incorrectly identified the building being renovated- it is in fact the building at the southwest corner of Main and Ferry streets (thank you jpp!).

1526 Main Street is owned by Main Ferry Development LLC and is 19,044 sq.ft.  The owner has been updating the ground floor commercial spaces.

Across the street, a long-vacant building is also going to see new life be by Housing Opportunities Made Equal.  The “Home for HOME Project” will be renovating the three-story corner building and constructing an adjoining structure along Ferry Street. 

The buildings will house the offices of the civil rights organization, as well as ten units of energy-efficient, barrier-free, affordable housing.  Groundbreaking was held in October but work apparently has not begun.
