The brownstone row houses at 29-31 Newbury Street were built between 1872 and 1874 and are contributing structures in the Back Bay Historic District. The facades are composed of Portland Connecticut brownstone, a material known for its poor durability. The brownstone exhibited significant deterioration, lost significant section and much of its architectural detailing, and posed a potential falling hazard in some areas. SGH helped developed a comprehensive facade restoration program that restored the original appearance of the building and improved durability.
