Owner Lionel Piper requested demolition of this corner store conversion and plans to rebuild on this 2X117 lot. Mr. Piper wants to build to meet the new elevation requirements. When I went out to take the photos it was raining and I ran into the owner and expressed my regrets that he has had to take this difficult decision. I explained the Squandered Heritage project and I told him I hope we can follow-up with his new construction. We both agreed, for many, demolition is part of moving forward.
