Hereva’s Waverley Hall Project Wins Historic Preservation Award

On May 31, 2018, Waverley Hall was awarded a City of Cambridge Historic Preservation Award by the Cambridge Historical Commission. The project was recognized for the exceptional quality of the work, and extent to which the project contributed to the preservation of the property. Congratulations to the project team on this wonderful distinction!

Built circa 1885, the 6-­story building at 115 Mt Auburn Street is a historic masonry building and part of the Harvard Square Historic District, City of Cambridge. Until recently, the building was in disrepair. Working closely with Cambridge Historic Commission, the project team carefully restored the original façade details, including brick, masonry and stained glass and replaced the ornate cornice at the roof. The building has now been fully renovated into boutique micro living spaces.

The 22nd annual awards were presented by the Historical Commission at Story Chapel at Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA in conjunction with National Preservation Month. Other award-winning projects included: Mount Auburn Cemetery–Egyptian-style Entrance Gate; 51 Antrim Street; 45 Garfield Street Grays Hall–Harvard University–Winthrop House; 330 Harvard Street; 29 Highland Street; 19-21½ Inman Street; 859 Massachusetts Avenue; 246 Norfolk Street.
