For decades, its twin smokestacks and blank beige walls have loomed above South Boston, but the glorious guts of the L Street Power Station have been hidden from view.
Now you can get a peek inside.
Redgate and Hilco Global, which paid $24.25 million last year for the shuttered plant, had an open house on Saturday, with another scheduled for Jan. 28, to gather community input on a redevelopment that is expected to include housing, retail, and open space.
First built in 1892, the plant’s main hall features vast, ornate windows, walls of tile, and period architectural flourishes. Much of this, the developers say, will be incorporated into the new creation: a modern mixed-use building with industrial bones.
