Milton, MA - - May 22, 2015 – The Paris Street Community Center in East Boston closed today for the start of an extensive renovation project led by Boston Building and Bridge as general contractor. The $10 million dollar project will allow the Center to receive the repairs and upgrades necessary to offer many additional resources to the East Boston community for the next 100 years. Building renovations will include interior upgrades of all mechanical systems and boilers, window replacements, exterior and interior door replacements, athletic facility improvements, teledata upgrades and new furniture and equipment. Project completion is expected in fall of 2016 and the Fennick McCredie Architecture is the architect on record. Originally built in 1910, the historical brick building is the oldest public gymnasium in the country and the current renovation that supports the community’s concerns for accessibility and safety will respect the historical integrity of the facility.
