Community Meeting Scheduled for July 17 to discuss New Street demolition plan

Why: To discuss the demolition delay on the building, and what we can do.

Where: East Boston Social Center

When: Tuesday, July 17th

Time: 6:00 PM


A group of East Boston residents invite their neighbors to participate in a community meeting to discuss options for saving the “Boston Fuel Trans” building on New Street. 


Tuesday, July 17

6pm to 730pm

East Boston Social Center

Central Square


The building—formerly the Atlantic Works Boiler building—was erected in 1893 and is notable for the prominent arch facing down Maverick Street.   Following a determination by the Boston Fire Department that the building needs extensive work in order to be brought up to code, or else should be demolished, the property owner determined that demolition is the most cost-effective option from their business’ perspective. 


On June 12, the Boston Landmarks Commission determined that the building has historical significance and granted a 90-day demolition delay, which expires on September 10, 2012.  The purpose of this community meeting will be to educate anyone interested in preserving the building on the process, preservation options, and the various regulatory issues that govern its potential reuse.  The meeting will also be an opportunity to solicit ideas from the broader community about possible re-use strategies for the building.
