[...]The enticing smell of baking waffle cones will soon be a sweet memory after Shukry and Connie Regep's downtown ice cream business in the old New England Hotel building closes next month.
Developer Chris Le Fevre has bought the ornate 1892 building from the Regeps, who are retiring, and will convert it into condominium units.
Le Fevre is my hero.
I read somewhere that he actually doesn't make any money on these restoration projects. I see no reason not to believe this. These projects are very complex and risky.
He's creating a wonderful legacy.*
*But I still hate Waddington's rooftop!!!
