Today representatives from AHF, DCR, and Nitsch Engineering took a tour of the Speedway's drainage system. We're working on a plan to modernize the system so that it protects the Charles River from run-off. Here are some photos of our visit:

We are excited to presenting an update of the Speedway HQ project at an event sponsored by the Brighton Allston Historical Society. The event is part of Preservation Month activities in Boston and will be held at the Presentation School in Brighton on May 10 at 7 pm. For more information see www.bahistory.org/BAHS2017SpringCalendar.pdf
We have been continuing to work out the details of the Speedway project and over the past few months we have met with Brighton Allston Improvement Association and Allston Civic Association. The feedback we received was postive, and we are excited to making progress!
Stay tuned for renderings and site plans!
The Speedway Headquarters team has been hard at work over the winter working on the development details of the project. We still have more to do but wanted to share our excitement about the neighborhood and the projects that are happening around us. Barry’s Corner Zone 3. 530 Western Avenue. Boston Landing. Arsenal on the Charles. Lots happening, we feel privileged to be a part of the fabric of this community, and we look forward to sharing more news as we progress. Stay tuned!
On Sunday, September 20th, AHF hosted a great community event at the Speedway Headquarters - a free Pop Up Yoga session held in the courtyard of the soon to be renovated complex. The event was held in partnership with Jenna Hill and Kristin Khederian of PopUpAsana. VitaCoco and Essentia water provided complimentary refreshments to participants that were energized by the Sunday morning class. Although the courtyard is paved with asphalt and the buildings are very much in a 'before' state, the yogis who attended braved the hard surface for a fantastic 50 minute workout. Pop Up Yoga at the Speedway Headquarters marks the first time that the courtyard has been used for something other than stabling horses or vehicle maintenance in the history of this 116 year old building. It was a great way to activate the Speedway now as AHF works towards delivering to the community a fully renovated, engaging and publicly accessible project. This will be the first of many more community driven events and programs in the future.
Stay tuned for more events in the Spring!
