Northeastern University EXP
795 Columbus Avenue, Roxbury, Boston, MA
Northeastern University has received approval for a new building on the Columbus Lot located on the Northeastern campus at 795 Columbus Avenue. The approved plans call for an eight-story, approximately 350,000 gross square foot building containing additional classrooms, laboratories, and a dynamic new makerspace hub. EXP will expand upon and enhance one of the key features on the Columbus lot: an open space gateway entry to the campus and urban plaza, which provides an amenity both for Northeastern and the broader community and a pedestrian plaza that links communities across the rail corridor. The Project will further animate and enhance the quality of the Columbus Avenue streetscape and neighborhood
In 2013, the first building on the Project site was permitted and then opened January of 2017, known as the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC).
