If you are a consistent reader to the HBI blog, you?ll know that Roslindale Village Main Streets (RVMS) and HBI have been working on a plan for the Roslindale Substation building that sits overlooking Adam?s Park. The community has long supported the reuse of the building and the two groups are now excited that they have a viable option for the space.
The Roslindale Substation building now has a proposed reuse that will continue to engage the community surrounding the Adam?s Park area as a Function Hall/Event Space.
The next step for RVMS and HBI is to meet with the Boston Redevelopment Authority, which is the current owner of the property. Stay tuned to track our progress.
