Kittery’s Wyman Rooming House may be replaced with three condos

KITTERY, Maine — Neighbors of the male-only Wyman Rooming House have been notified of a proposal to tear down the aging residence and replace it with three detached, single-family condominium units.

However, Jim Higgins, whose name is on the proposal and whose spouse is a co-owner of the property, said the decision to tear down the residence has not yet been finalized. In fact, the owners may ultimately opt to leave it as it is, but sell it in the next few years, even if the town approves the condo project, he said. 

A proposal has been filed with the town of Kittery to tear down the longtime Wyman Rooming House and build three detached single-family homes.

“Right now, we are doing this process to see what our options are for the property,” Higgins said. He drafted the design of the proposed homes and said his husband owns the property with his family.

The owners in town records are listed only as Eliot-based Lusitano LLC. Altus Engineering in Portsmouth sent notices to 32 abutting property owners about the proposal on Dec. 20, followed by the preliminary site plan review application to the town two days later.
