Palladio Hall

Palladio Hall is a historic three-story retail and office building located at the corner of Warren and Dudley streets in Dudley Square, Roxbury, across from the Dartmouth Hotel. The building was designed and owned by Nathaniel J. Bradlee, a prominent Boston architect, and constructed by T.J. Whidden, a well-respected builder of the time, in the late 1870s. Palladio Hall is one of Boston’s few commercial buildings in the Italian Renaissance style and features a handsome Ohio sandstone facade and cast iron storefronts.

Nuestra Comunidad restored the building in the late 1990s in collaboration with the Massachusetts Historical Commission, which provided funding and technical support for the project. In addition to providing useful commercial space, the Palladio Hall rehabilitation inspired further development in Dudley Square by demonstrating the financial feasibility of upper-floor office space in an existing building. Palladio Hall now houses numerous small businesses in addition to Nuestra’s main offices and the Nuestra NeighborWorks Homeownership Center.
