About Harvard Enterprise Research Campus
Approved 14.1-acre, 900,000-square-foot mixed-use development that will be Harvard University’s first foray into the development of Allston Landing, a Harvard-owned former rail yard spanning over 140 acres, and the latest expansion of Harvard’s growing Allston campus.
The Harvard Enterprise Research Campus would feature 400,000 square feet of office/lab space, 250,000 square feet of hotel/conference center space containing 200 rooms and 250,000 square feet of residential space containing 250 units. Two new public spaces would be created on-site. Between 800 and 900 parking spaces would be provided in a combination of below-grade and at-grade spaces.
The Harvard Enterprise Research Campus would be centered about Cattle Drive, a new north-south roadway that in the short term would provide access into and through the project area. In the long term, as more of Allston Landing is developed, Cattle Drive would provide a through connection from Western Avenue to Cambridge Street and onward to the future West Station MBTA Commuter Rail stop on the Framingham/Worcester Line. The Harvard Enterprise Research Campus would be conveniently located minutes from the Massachusetts Turnpike and Soldiers Field Road, with easy access to Downtown Boston and Logan Airport.
