Developer digs in at downtown property



Greg Shinberg, of Shinberg Consulting is the project manager of 27 Washington St. If a tenant is found quickly, the building could be open in the early part of 2018. Shinberg said he and his team have felt welcomed by members of the community. “Public works has been great, the inspectors are responsive. Everybody is trying to work together and we are looking forward to the project,” he said. Right, developer Jim Brady said the former courthouse in Biddeford needs new heating, plumbing, air-conditioning and windows. Brady also plans to install an elevator to make the property handicap accessible. The work is being done according to historic preservation standards and guidelines of the National Park Service. Brady hopes to show 27 Washington St. to potential tenants beginning this month.
