Allston Planning and Development

Barry's Corner

Harvard is creating a campus for the next century, a place where students, faculty, staff, visitors and the community alike will learn, live, work, play, and innovate. To do this, Harvard is making critical investments for the future – developing more than a million square feet of new academic, research, and administrative facilities; renovating, both programmatically and physically, buildings that support Executive Education and other uses; and creating new gathering and social spaces for the University and the community.

Today, Harvard’s academic mission continues to evolve, creating new types of campus growth needs. New technologies, discoveries, and societal issues require facilities that support innovation and collaboration in new ways and at new scales. Harvard continues to address these academic evolution's, and its land in Allston provides an opportunity to develop new campus resources to support the University’s dynamic teaching and research mission. Harvard has before it the extraordinary opportunity to develop its south campus in a way that enables stronger connections and collaborations throughout the University, the surrounding community and the region.
