2000 Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award

McGinley Kalsow & Associates worked closely with the MBTA to restore the last remaining shelter structures along the Green Line transit line from the first decades of the electrified streetcar system. They were built in 1900 in the craftsman style with shingled exteriors and red clay tile roofs. The shelters had fallen into disrepair, with many of the original building elements missing or badly deteriorated. Missing elements, such as windows and roof tiles, were replaced to match the original. Deteriorated wood elements were repaired or replaced. These restored structures contribute to the Beacon Street National Register Historic District.
