Jewett Performing Historic Renovation for City of Salem Administrative Offices in Salem, MA

Salem Administrative Office - Corporate Construction & Renovation

(Salem, MA) Historic Salem, Massachusetts is one of New England’s most well-known and visited cities. Known for its rich history, and the infamous Witch Trials of 1692, the Seaport city is a destination for travelers of all ages. While much of Salem’s identity is still derived from the witch trials, the city also offers residents and year-round visitors a great variety of dining and cultural attractions. (/h4>

New England Developer, Nine Zero Washington, LLC is comprised of three partners, George Vernet, Kenneth Carpi and Thomas Carpi. Recently, the group had the opportunity to purchase and restore the property at 90 Washington Street in Salem, MA. They are no strangers to Salem, all three have developed and managed commercial and residential investment property in Salem and the surrounding areas for the past 35+ years. Vernet also owns the Tuckaway Tavern in Raymond, NH, which has quickly become one of New Hampshire’s most frequented and sought out dining experiences. Kenneth Carpi and Thomas Carpi, have investments spanning the entire Eastern Coast of the United States and have concentrated a significant portion of their business in Salem, MA.

Raymond, NH based Jewett Construction has been contracted to perform a 24,000 sf restoration and two-story addition to the property which will be the future location of the City of Salem Administrative offices (directly across the street from the existing Salem City Hall) with public meeting rooms. According to Craig Jewett, President of Jewett Construction, “Salem is a great, vibrant city with so much going on. We are privileged to have the opportunity to perform a historic renovation and create a new home for City of Salem employees.”

The project was designed by Winter Street Architects of Salem, and the design was created with a specific emphasis on preserving and restoring the historical features and character of the property. Construction is now underway and is expected to be completed during the upcoming winter. The neighboring businesses will remain open and operational throughout construction.
