Jasiel Correia’s co-conspirator David Hebert is selling former Fall River schools

FALL RIVER – When David Hebert convinced the city council’s real estate committee to sell him the former Silvia and Lincoln schools, he did so with the promise of a redevelopment that would include a boutique hotel, restaurant and high-end apartment building.

Hebert, owner of Hanover Properties, paid $5,000 and $10,000 respectively for the two schools. At that presentation to the real estate committee in 2016, he also pledged to keep the preservation of the old historic schools in mind and bring architects with heritage preservation expertise to discuss the plans.

Neither the Silvia School on Hartwell Street nor the Lincoln School on Pine Street have ever experienced any kind of transformation.

In September 2020, Glenn Hathaway, director of the Silvia School’s City Inspection Service, found numerous health and safety violations at the devastated three-acre property and ordered it boarded up to keep squatters out of the complex.
