BNN Charles J. Beard II Media Center


The Boston Neighborhood Network has called the BNN Charles J. Beard II Media Center home since 2007. Formerly the Egelston Square Power Station, the facility was renovated and repurposed from powering trains to empowering people.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the BNN Charles J. Beard II Media Center is a LEED-certified U.S. Green Building operating with minimal environmental impact, which contributes to the health and sustainability of our city.

The BNN Charles J. Beard II Media Center houses two production studios, three edit suites, a state-of-the-art Timothy Smith Network media lab, a conference room with full audio/visual capabilities and several meeting spaces. Our mobile production truck is parked in our backyard, ready to go out to the neighborhoods to cover community events and our satellite dish sits on the roof bringing down programming from beyond Boston's borders. It is a community gem providing access to 21st century communications, skills, resources and opportunities for current and future generations.

Located near the geographic center of Boston, the BNN Charles J. Beard II Media Center is easy to reach by public transportation and car, and has free parking. Directions and public transportation routes to our facility can be found here.
