Work on Octagon Hotel Restoration Begins

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi Friday, 21 August 2009 00:00
Things are looking up for the Octagon Hotel – both literally and figuratively. Lou Baldino, architect for the Octagon House restoration, said he and the owner have found and hired a shoring company to brace up the whole building. “There is a lot of work going on at the first floor. The Oyster Bay Main Street Association hired an outside engineer and we are trying to implement that plan. Hopefully it will succeed. If not, we will look to replace the foundation; now we are trying to preserve it. The chances are we can re-build the building. I’m there two to three times a day. I’m the Clerk of the Works as well as the designer of the project. It will be the centerpiece of the hamlet. It will be a great anchor for the town,” he said.
