“WHALE is thrilled to announce another new restoration project: The Capitol Theater building, located in the North End on Acushnet Avenue. We have partnered with the Community Economic Development Center (CEDC) on the transformative project, which will restore and rehabilitate the 1920 mixed-use film theater and commercial building for use as a resource hub for the North End. CEDC recently became owner of the building and WHALE is the development partner to assist CEDC on their first historic preservation bricks and mortar project.”
