Allston Plan’s First BuildingTopics:
A 500,000-square-foot science complex will be the first building of Harvard University’s new Allston campus. The complex, which will house the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and a number of cross-departmental science initiatives, will be built on Western Avenue next to the WGBH building, a short walk from HBS. The complex will help Boston solidify its place as one of the world’s top centers for biotechnology, said Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. Construction will begin next year.
