2021 Preservation Achievement Award
We’re honored to have been selected as a winner of the 2021 Preservation Achievement Award, given out by the Boston Preservation Alliance. This amazing award is given to the most creative solutions for bringing historic buildings back to life, and The Overlook did just that.
Originally built in 1909 by the Passionist Order of the Roman Catholic Church, our community is a unique reimagining of this historic church, monastery, landscape and shrine. After suffering from years of neglect, Developer Cabot, Cabot and Forbes began creating a new future for this site in 2016.
The former St. Gabriel’s Church is now Maker Hall, an amenity space of epic proportions, and the former St. Gabriel’s Monastery has been transformed into Overture Landmark, a one-of-a-kind collection of residences.
