West Palm man plans to spend six figures moving and restoring...

This is an intriguing project in which I have been involved. I will continue to assist in the logistics of the relocation, which are substantial. Click title for link for Chris Persaud's article in the Palm Beach Post.
From the article:
Blackman estimates it would cost about $500,000 to move and renovate the house and to buy the vacant O Street lot.
The historic house at 205 Pilgrim Road, West Palm Beach, will be moved to 1306 N. O St., Lake Worth.
“Whether or not he’ll make any money remains to be seen,” Blackman said. “He is willing to step up with his own money and do this. And that is really extraordinary.”
Marcello said he has no plans yet on making back the money he’ll spend.
“It’s a good example of how you can work with your city,” Marcello said. “We get to keep the trees and we get to keep the house. It’s a win-win for everyone. We’re gonna make it a lovely home.”
