Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

Was 114 Western one of the former WGBH buildings?

Yes.

Originally part of the WGBH campus, the renovated facility will provide administrative offices for the John A. Paulson School of Engineering as well as their associated Facilities and Maintenance departments. There will be (2) large, flexible classrooms in the building as well as the University’s first new child care center in decades.

Re: Harvard - Allston Campus

Tom Glynn is a heavy hitter to take the helm of Harvard's plans in Allston. The guy is 72 and this looks like a "legacy" thing for him. I like that:

He's also been very successful in moving development forward on MassDOT's RE parcels in the Seaport, which is a similar situation (RE investment and development on parcels far from an organization's core and not central to its mission).
