Re: Wentworth Expansion

It's not terrible -- it's just shortsighted if the institute is looking for redevelopment opportunity. Perhaps the most prominent location on campus, you would imagine they'd want to utilize this space to it's fullest potential.

Re: Wentworth Expansion

I highly recommend that anyone passing by the MFA area to stop into the lobby of Wentworth Hall to view all of WIT's new master plan buildings and the revised master plan itself. They have new renderings of the Beatty expansion, the Ira Allen atrium, the new res hall at 525 Huntington Ave, and the new Sweeney Field on Parker St.

Re: Wentworth Expansion

If Sweeney Field is to be relocated, what will that site be used for? Could they be considering selling it to.......Northeastern?

No no no. Never. That site was planned to be developed into an academic building as part of the first IMP, but it has been categorized as "Potential Future Development" in the most recent IMP.

Btw guys, Beatty starts May 16!! Parts will open and close in phases over the next 2 years.

Front wall of one of the group study rooms in the library has been torn out:


I've always loved the coffered ceilings:

Re: Wentworth Expansion

Also of note is that since Ira Allen and some of Beatty are unable to be used, Wentworth is holding classes in the Greek Orthodox Church on Parker St (2 rooms) and there's also a massive set of portable classrooms on the (Wentworth Hall) Front Lawn. The portables didn't pass inspection the first time, lol.

Re: Wentworth Expansion

Beatty!!! (Flanagan Campus Center)

These were taken by the Dean, Annamaria Wenner. The soft-opening of the ground floor of Flanagan is March 12.





Looking into the fitness center. No more exposed concrete coffers.


New seating area of the new cafeteria.


Badly needed new elevator!

I love that you can still see the brutalist rhythmic and monolithic structural columns in the new forum that once comprised the old facade. They didn't hide them with any perpendicular drywall.

ugh..... sorry, but any architect who exports renderings direct from sketchup can't be trusted to be competent
