Yesterday a letter went out to the displaced neighbors of the crumbling White Brothers Livery on Jersey Street from Empire Building Diagnostics, the company that’d doing the “therapeutic demolition”: Be prepared to spend another three weeks living with relatives or in hotel rooms.
Empire will soon begin removing the massive roof trusses. Meanwhile, developer Sam Savarino—who bought the building for $1 from Bob Freudenheim, who let the historic structure decay to the point of collapse—is working on a rehab plan.
