BC Campus Projects

FPA has been retained to manage the environmental review and permitting process for redevelopment projects on Boston College's 65-acre Brighton Campus, acquired from the Archdiocese of Boston. FPA has secured approvals for a new athletic complex, renovations of two historic buildings, rehabilitation of the Cardinal’s residence for an Art Museum, repurposing an existing apartment building for student dormitories and the construction of a new student residence hall on the main campus. 129 Lake Street has been renovated and is being used for administrative offices. 2121 Commonwealth Avenue has been renovated and expanded to house the University's Advancement program. The Art Museum, 2000 Commonwealth Avenue dormitory, and the new 492-bed dormitory at 2150 Commonwealth Avenue are now all open. Construction of the athletic facilities will commence in spring 2017. These projects total over 500,000 gross square feet with a value of more than $150 million. The projects have generated an intense local review of issues such as traffic, parking, historic properties impact, land use, and infrastructure.
