Hope for 364 Henry Street?


    The owner of long-dilapidated 364 Henry Street has a date with the Landmarks Preservation Commission for a major building upgrade. According to public records, the building still belongs to John Quadrozzi, who promised to repair the structure back in 2010. Here are the proposed changes on the LPC agenda for both 364 Henry and 129 Congress Street, the adjoining building around the corner: “An Italianate style rowhouse built in 1852-53 and a two-story brick stable building built c.1860. Application is to alter the facades, construct rooftop and rear yard additions, install a stoop, bay windows, light fixtures, roof deck, a metal fence, alter window openings on the stable and modify and add curb cuts.” A pretty big project for a pretty big eyesore! Looks like the item was laid over from tomorrow’s meeting, so it may be some time before work actually happens. The LPC issued a lawsuit for failure to maintain the historic structures two years ago. On the DOB end, the buildings have a long history of stop work orders; the DOB issued the last stop work order this July.
