"City" piece on two historic buildings at 627 and 629 Congress Street in Portlan
"City" piece on two historic buildings at 627 and 629 Congress Street in Portland: the old Kotzschmar Hall, an opera house designed by Portland architect Frederick A. Tompson in the 1890s, and the William Pitt Preble House, built in the 1790s. Both of the buildings are scheduled for demolition by order of the city council. Glenn Gaudin, owner of the former Kotzschmar Hall, has approached the council with a restoration plan, but the council is showing reluctance to accept the plan. It appears that city officials still plan on demolishing both properties, but haven't released a demolition date or plans for what will replace the buildings.
