Warren renovation raises eyebrows

By   /   October 26, 2012  /   1 Comment

An extreme home renovation on Westminster Street is raising eyebrows in Warren. Since workers lopped the roof off of this circa-1890 tenement at 5 Westminster St. last week, it’s been turning heads among preservationists, many of whom have taken to Facebook in hopes of finding out more details. Here they are, according to Warren Building Inpsector Bill Nash’s office: The home’s owners, 5 Westminster Street LLC, took out a building permit in early September to remove the second floor and build new second and third floors on the building. There will also be at least one deck coming off the new area.

The estimated cost of renovations is $149,880, according to the permit.
