3908 N. Charles St. The Warrington

The Warrington

Two years before the 1929 stock market crash, the large lot at 3908 sold.  Turmoil about zoning changes that would permit a building higher than two or three stories worried many homeowners.  Residents strenuously objected to turning Charles Street into a veritable “Chinese wall” of apartment houses.The Warrington was built in 1928.  This grand, enormous apartment building, Georgian Revival style, replaced the Hyde mansion and rivaled it in magnificence.
