Design Guidelines

Historic Monument Area Boston Naval Shipyard at Charlestown

The Design Guidelines established detailed design guidelines for the preservation and reuse of historic buildings in the Historic Monument Area.

"The Shipyard structures illustrate many building types and several phases of 19th and 20th century architectural styles. Early 19th century residential examples exist as well as later industrial buildings and World War II "temporary" shed structures. Many are of architectural merit, and some are of very great significance."

"Buildings of historic and architectural significance has been identified and will be retained and rehabilitated subject to specific building guidelines. Each new development will be subject to specific design and use controls."
