Saw some work being done at 17th and cuming yesterday and today. There are two dumpsters out there and the boards were taken off of some of the windows and doors for a little while.

Would drop my jaw to actually see one of those buildings on Cuming rehabbed instead of torn down.

Coyote, the Aero Rooms boarding house was down the street, and was already torn down. This is the Fitzgerald Rooms building. A dumpster outside is a tell-tale sign of either demo or rehab. I bet this one stays. According to DOGIS, there is no demo order out on the building.

Looking at the address on the assessor's website (2702 Douglas), this is owned by Landmark Group. I expect this to be a rehab, just like the Anderson Building on 24th.

Confirmed rehab, just don't know any specific details. Talked to one of the workers doing interior demo about it today.

Really hope that first floor brick gets more closely matched to the upper floor's. It looks pretty shabby.

Developer tests market with projects that have no convenient spaces for cars

Cindy Gonzalez: World-Herald staff writer wrote:Paladino’s vision is a dozen high-end, mostly one-bedroom apartments, ranging from 500 to 1,000 square feet, that are to be restored in the spirit of Boston’s Back Bay area, where he once lived.

Units facing Cuming Street each would have their own entrance to a second-floor dwelling. The wide sidewalk would be transformed partially into an outdoor courtyard with brick columns and a wrought-iron gate. “It will be a secure, private kind of place for tenants to congregate and socialize,” Paladino said.

A second courtyard for tenants would be behind the building’s planned glass and brick facade. Rents would range from about $800 to $1,200.

12 apartments on the top floor here.

Also I was having trouble understanding the courtyard thing on Cuming. Does that mean they will build out a ways toward the street covering the sidewalk?

When I was in elementary school, my parent owned The Fitzgarald sometime in the 1960s to the 80s I believe. My father ran off with the money he got for the place. He actually ran off with everything his wife and children sacrificed for.

For a small building this little place has a lot of character. I really hope it stays and finely gets it's long awaited makeover.

The north downtown building is The Fitzgerald, a vacant former hotel and rooming house at 1624 Cuming St. Landmark Group plans to renovate the two-story, historic structure into 12 apartments.

Each apartment will have its own private courtyard. The 11 one-bedroom units are expected to rent for $950 a month, and a two-bedroom apartment would rent for $1,150.

The total cost would be $1.6 million. Landmark is seeking up to $212,000 in TIF.

It's great to see one of these hold buildings rehabbed. The private courtyards sound pretty nice; I wonder how they will work out?

This property is for sale. Obviously the previous plans are not happening right now.

According to the OWH, this project is still on.

"The Fitzgerald at 17th and Cuming Streets was purchased by owner Dave Paladino in July 2014. Renovations will start in February and finish at the end of next year. The apartment complex has 11 units of one and two bedrooms ranging from $800 to $900 a month."
