At its annual meeting on June 18th, the Southwest Boston Community Development Corporation (SWBCDC) honored HBI with a Community Recognition Award for its preservation work in the Hyde Park neighborhood.
As the award states: Southwest Boston CDC salutes and honors Historic Boston Inc for its vote of confidence in the future of downtown Hyde Park as evidenced by its acquisition and restoration of the Vertullo Building on Fairmount Avenue, its determination to fully rent the retail spaces at the Vertullo Building in short order, its painstaking research documenting higher density in the Hyde Park business district in earlier eras and for being a force in the revitalization and rejuvenation of Hyde Park’s downtown.
The Hyde Park-based organization advances community led initiatives in the Hyde Park and Roslindale neighborhoods, and is currently at work on the development of a new 27-unit rental apartment structure adjacent to HBI’s project at the historic Vertullo Building near the Fairmount commuter rail station. Twenty four of those units will be designated Affordable.
HBI is grateful to SWBCDC for the honor of this award.
