Substation Opens at Parkside On Adams

The historic Roslindale substation will open on January 14th, welcoming customers of the newest Craft Beer Cellar location. Vacant since 1971, the Substation is a former power supply and switching station that was part of Boston’s network of electric trolley cars.

PCA’s development of the adjacent Parkside on Adams restored the substation for retail & restaurant use. An inventive restoration and planning effort led to the substation’s listing on the National Register of Historic Places – PCA’s creative design seamlessly melds old and new.
