Nicholas A. Armata

Senior Preservation Planner

As the Senior Preservation Planner for the Landmarks Commission, Nick is responsible for the City's Aberdeen, Beacon Hill, and St. Botolph historic districts. These districts maintain some of the largest collections of nineteenth and early twentieth century architecture in the country, which are synonymous with Boston's identity. Nick's mission is to promote and enhance these districts through design review management, community engagement, and policy enforcement.

Before joining the team in January 2018, Nick developed a unique collection of professional experiences in planning, government, construction, account management, and social media engagement roles throughout Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. Nick feels passionately that well designed, historic cities are a critical component to its citizens well being and productivity.  He earned an Associates degree in Communications, a Bachelors degree in Regional Planning and GIS from Westfield State University, and a Masters degree in Urban and Regional Planning from UMass, Amherst.  

Originally from Agawam, MA, Nick currently lives in Dorchester with his partner, Ryan, and his dog, Jacob. In his free time, he enjoys politics, reading, running, kayaking, craft beers, and exploring Boston's diverse architecture, culture, and food scene.
