Owner: Harbor Point Development

200 Henry Street was constructed in the early 1900’s. G.L. Capasso Inc. was contracted to restore its façade. The owner received a historic grant and all work was performed using historic restoration methods.

With a fast track schedule, crews worked tirelessly performing all aspects of the façade restoration, such as cutting and pointing, patching, scaffolding, brick replacement, sheet metal repairs, cleaning and caulking. The project was performed on time and to the satisfaction of the owner and consultant.
