fbpx 34th Annual Preservation Achievement Awards | Boston Preservation Alliance

The 2022 Preservation Awards were held on the evening of Thursday, October 20, 2022, at Garage B at the Charles River Speedway.

The best way to preserve a space is by making it useful. The collection of six outstanding preservation projects below does just that. Each one brings life to tired corners allowing a new generation of Bostonians to create memories of these historic places and spaces. Crumbling parking lots host neighborhood events. Old utility buildings foster entrepreneurship. A gutted neighborhood home is reimagined to serve as a dwelling of the 21st-century. These projects are not only useful spaces but are useful in telling the story of Boston.

Susan Park, who passed away on February 25th at the age of 83, was a founding member of the Boston Preservation Alliance and for over 40 years championed efforts to preserve historic resources. She was an avid and outspoken supporter for Boston and especially her beloved South End, which she was connected to, in some way or another, since 1969. As an advocate, Susan was a force to be reckoned with and inspired many across the city to support her cause.

We have renamed our President’s Award to the Susan Park President’s Award in honor of Susan Park and her dedication to the City of Boston. David Hacin and Hacin + Associates is our first Susan Park President’s Award recipient. We are also pleased to present Lydia Lowe with the Codman Award for Lifetime Achievement.

First, a tribute to Susan Park.
