The Boston Preservation Alliance is an independent, nonprofit organization that brings people and organizations together to encourage quality stewardship of Boston’s historic buildings, landscapes and neighborhoods. Through advocacy and education we encourage and support collaboration with community voices to join us to guide thoughtful change that protects places, preserves character, and promote vibrancy. We believe historic character defines our city.
Bestowed annually since 1988, the Preservation Achievement Awards honor outstanding achievements in historic preservation and compatible new construction in Boston. Celebrated for their positive impact on the city’s built environment, winning projects are looked upon as models for future preservation work. We believe that creating a better future for Boston lies in preserving the diversity of its past.
The 9 preservation projects to be highlighted at the event include the refurbished Whitney Hotel, the redesigned Revolution Hotel, the former MBTA substation Parkside on Adams, the new and inviting North Square, the grand Myles Standish Hall, the fascinating Hub History Podcast, the repurposed Graves Light, the historic Dillaway-Thomas House and the magnificent Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
Carl Nold of Historic New England will receive the 2020 Codman Award for Lifetime Achievement and James Batchelor and Arrowstreet will receive the President’s Award for Excellence.
