A February 21, 1999 article in the Boston Sunday Globe's real estate section highlighted the Allen House in the south end of Boston as its "Home of the Week."

He writes, "We literally snatched this structure from the wrecker's ball and restored as much as possible.... I'm sure our Victorian forebears are smiling down on us appreciably." The Allen House was Jeremy's last project at Domenech, Hicks & Krockmalnic Architects. He is now working at Ecklus/Manfredi on a new Hilton Hotel for Providence, Rhode Island.
