Demolition On Durrell

Lembo-Durrell-DemolitionWork has begun to clear two lots on Durrell Street that will become the site of five single family homes, and three of them are already sold.

Jason Lembo had gotten approval for the project in 2008, but it languished during the recession. He got a renewed approval from the Verona Planning Board in March of this year. In May, the Town Council approved a new sewer connection for the new cul-de-sac, which is being created on what had been 30 and 32 Durrell Street. One of the lots had been the garage for Lembo’s business, Fredco Landscaping. Two older single family homes are being demolished, as well as the Fredco garage.


The five new homes will be large by Verona standards–3,000 square feet–and they will be ready for buyers to move in in January 2014. Lembo says that the three homes at the back of the site have already been sold. Anyone interested in the other two should stop in at the construction trailer on the site.

The cul-de-sac will be just east of another planned residential development, the construction of 33 two-bedroom townhouses by Lennar. That project, on the site of the former Bahr Lumber, was to have begun construction this past winter but it has been stalled by litigation.
