That info seems to be missing from the articles. I'd thought I'd heard in the past that they've done 100-year ground leases, and would suspect that might be the case here too.

Re: MIT Campus infill and small projects

I believe it is 99 years. Ground leases typically run between 50 and 99 years. Under common law, 99 years was the maximum term for a ground lease.

I Googled ground lease terms for the Grosvenor Estate, and found a reference to 999 years from the distant past, which screwed the lessor.

Re: MIT Campus infill and small projects

That's a bold move by MIT. They're essentially saying they don't need this space for academic expansion in the next 100 years. I'm surprised; I didn't think it would be that long.

Re: MIT Campus infill and small projects

Interesting that the angled floor plate look is done with add-ons instead of being structural, they're falsies. The only sour note is the clunky exhaust stack, should have been more modernist. This will be a fine industrial addition to MIT.

Re: MIT Campus infill and small projects

I don't know if this has yet been mentioned, and I'm not sure it counts as a small project or infill, but the new building MIT has commissioned for music will be behind Kresge. It appears that the design architect will be SANAA, which is (at least to me) quite exciting.
