David Clem purchased the historic Dominican Block in downtown Lewiston, Maine, in 2002. The building was vacant and in dangerous condition. Lyme Properties stabilized the building and commenced environmental remediation, interior demolition, and clean-up. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and thus Lyme faces significant design and permitting challenges in order to restore the exterior and to comply with modern building codes, including ADA access.
