Renovation and restoration of the former MBTA Power Station in Egleston Square creates a vibrant new home for the Boston Neighborhood Network. Originally constructed in 1909, the building had remained vacant for 30 years. The renovated building includes a community media center, television studios, conference spaces, and offices. By re-using an existing structure in a transit-oriented location and applying green technology, the redevelopment is considered a model for green historic preservation projects.
