Springfield, MA According to Peabody Properties, Memorial Sq. Apartments (managed by Peabody Properties), at 2295 Main St., was selected for a Preservation Award by the Springfield Preservation Trust (SPT). The award ceremony was held on May 16 at Tower Sq.

The Preservation Award is dedicated to the spirit of recognition of the essentials of preservation and their application to the city’s inventory of historic homes and other buildings.

Springfield is a special community, and we feel a responsibility to ensure that Memorial Square Apartments reflects that – for the benefits of the residents, and community neighbors.”

“Being recognized is a true honor and especially gratifying, given the extensive nature of this rehabilitation; renovations that fit with the historic character of this Springfield neighborhood – celebrating Memorial Square’s future while at the same time honoring the past,” said Heriberto Flores, managing partner of the ownership behind Memorial Sq. Apartments and chairman and CEO of the New England Farm Workers’ Council.
