Demolition Starts Next Week
This message is to let you know that demolition of the existing building at 242 Spencer Avenue, the former French Naturalization Club, is scheduled to begin next week, on Tuesday, September 19.

Demolition may take approximately two to three weeks to complete. The work will be noisy. To protect against dust generated by the demolition of the building, NEI General Contracting will wet the demolition site and debris throughout demolition, and fully cover the trucks transporting debris off the project site. The Chelsea Fire Department will provide a fire watch on site until all of the combustible materials are removed from the building.  

If you have any questions about demolition and construction, please reach out to Alex Garcia-Mendoza or Steve Miers of NEI General Contracting:

Alex: 781-885-3742
Steve: 508-509-1042


For general questions about the 242 Spencer development, please reach out to Cassie Mann of The Neighborhood Developers:

We know that any construction project will impact those who live, work, and go to school nearby. Both NEI General Contracting and The Neighborhood Developers, as well as all workers at 242 Spencer, will work to mitigate the impacts that this project will have on your day-to-day lives.

We will continue to provide regular updates throughout construction, at least once per month. If you have friends, family, or neighbors who would like to stay informed about the project, please share this message with them. You can also check out our project website, which will be another place to follow updates during construction: www.TheNeighborhoodDevelopers.org/242-Spencer

Thank you for reading and for your patience as we work to bring affordable homes to Chelsea families!
