“Keep the Change” – Panel Discussion
May 5, 2016 at 6:00 pm–8:00 pm
Join our Preservation Month 2016 kick-off at the Boston Public Library (a designated Boston Landmark) for a panel discussion on how new and old can coexist successfully in Boston, using examples of recent projects at the Burnham Building (Filene’s), in the South End Landmark District and at the Boston Public Library. The Boston Landmarks Commission, along with nine local historic district commissions, guide change for more than 8,000 properties across the city. Proposed transformations – from sensitive repair and replacement to large additions and new construction – take place via a collaborative and thoughtful process; we see the exciting results: a vertical glass addition on a Landmark or a new tower in a Landmark district. Ted Landsmark a Board Member of the Boston Redevelopment Authority will moderate the panel. Panelists include John Amodeo, Boston Landmarks Commission and South End Landmark District Commission, David Leonard, Director of Administration and Technology, Boston Public Library, Kathleen C. MacNeil, Principal at MDA Partners, LLC, a joint venture of MDA Partners and Millennium Partners.
This talk is free and open to the public. Reception to follow (cash bar).
