The Work Team's recommendations will ultimately result in a new Institutional Master Plan for the University in Allston.
Harvard University's sweeping 50- year master plan will transform a 360-acre swath of Allston into an expanse of academic facilities, student housing and a new public square. When the first 20-year phase of the project is completed, it will include some 9 million square feet of new building space and create at least 4,000 new jobs.
The centerpiece of the plan is a major urban space called Barry's Corner. It is envisioned to be the new Harvard Square, with a large plaza, shopping and entertainment, it will be the center of the new campus when all facilities are completed.
Leggat McCall Properties,in a joint venture with McCall and Almy, plays a role participating as a member of the Work Team developing planning recommendations for the University and other key stakeholders.
