Roslindale Raises a Glass….to the Glass!

Roslindale Raises a Glass….to the Glass!

Roslindale Village celebrates two new things in September: the installation of a new multi-story window on the façade of the historic Roslindale Substation (1911) and the permanent arrival of Turtle Swamp Brewing company in the substation.

The beautiful glass installation overlooks Adams Village and allows pedestrians a view into the cavernous interior of the substation from the street.  It is the final step in the substation’s renewal by developer Peregrine Group LLC in partnership with Historic Boston Inc. and Roslindale Village Main Street.

“We are excited to unveil these windows and, in turn, unveil the substation to the neighborhood,” said Adam Rogoff on behalf of Roslindale Village Main Street. Rogoff credited the George B. Henderson Foundation for its generosity which helped make possible the glass wall’s installation and restoration of the Substation’s historic windows.

Owner and developer Peregrine Group LLC also introduced Turtle Swamp Brewing Company as the new tenant at the Substation.  Turtle Swamp will activate the space as a beer garden most evenings. “The space is fantastic. It’s huge and open and wonderfully old,” said Nicholas Walther, Turtle Swamp’s co-founder and brewer.

Turtle Swamp Brewing served their craft at the September 14th celebration.  Exodus Bagels served bagel sandwiches, and Roslindale Main Street served slices of two celebratory sheet cakes. Turtle Swamp Brewings Roslindale Beer Garden is located at 4228 Washington Street in Roslindale and is open Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
