A century-old building currently under renovation is gaining height thanks to a new metal frame.
The building dates from 1920 and had apartments and a retail space.
Many of the buildings along Grand Street and the commercial districts in the surrounding neighborhood have seen similar extensions adding to the total floor space while preserving the older facade.
Old tax photos show the building in the 1940s when Grand Street still had a trolly line.
