Speedway Administration Building Project

A unique public-partnership provides for the protection of this historic building

Building on efforts to conserve and protect the Commonwealth’s cultural
resources while fostering economic development, in September 2021 the Baker-Polito Administration announced the completion of the $11 million Speedway Revitalization Project as part of the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCR) Historic Curatorship Program.

DCR partnered with the Architectural Heritage Foundation (AHF) to revitalize the Charles River Speedway Headquarters Administration Buildings to preserve the historic space while enabling local enterprise, such as Notch Brewing, which now operates a brewery and taproom at the Speedway. The project was funded by AHF’s own equity, Massachusetts Rehabilitation and New Market Tax credits, the City of Boston Community Preservation Commission, and other sources to restore the once dilapidated facility into a now thriving gathering space for residents and visitors.
