Merchants, shoppers, and those driving and walking by the near-replica of the landmark 1859 Italianate-style Lincoln Building in Hingham Square are pleased to see that the fencing is down — a sure sign of progress!
"We're excited and looking forward to a grand opening possibly at the end of April hosted at Tosca," said Charlene Flynn of TLC Real Estate, who owns the building with Reuven Levy. "This will add even more vibrancy to downtown Hingham." The building is being praised by town officials and residents alike following a long development process.
The leases haven't been signed for the first-floor retail space yet, but Flynn confirmed that TLC and two high-end boutiques will be among the five businesses on the first floor. "We've been talking with a lot of different possible tenants, from high-end clothing boutiques to a gelato shop," she said.
There are four one-bedroom units on the second floor and two, two-bedroom penthouse units on the top floor.
The original building, which was slated for eventual demolition, was taken down after the roof collapsed following several heavy snowstorms in early 2015. The plans got the final okay from the zoning board of appeals in 2016.
Are you excited about this new addition to Hingham Square and looking forward to finding out what retail shops will be located there?
