Fort Point Associates, Inc. (FPA) has been working with Boston University since 1988, when it was first asked to manage the planning, environmental review, and permitting process for the redevelopment of the 10-acre Commonwealth Armory site. Since then, FPA has secured approvals for every major building project for the nation's fourth largest private nonprofit university, with 12 million square feet of buildings serving 48,000 students, faculty, and staff. Collectively, FPA has managed the approvals for multiple projects with a value in excess of $1 billion, each of which has generated an intense local review of issues including traffic, parking, historic impact, land use, density, building height and infrastructure.
Most recently, FPA served as lead consultant for the Campus' Institutional Master Plan process. Individual projects the University has undertaken with FPA include the John Hancock Student Village, Harriri School of Management, Campus Historic Preservation Plan, Life Sciences Building, Graduate Student Housing, Photonics Research Laboratory, New Balance Field, Student Services Center, the renovation of the internationally recognized School of Law Building, the Center for Integrated Life Sciences, the Myles Standish Hall renovation, 100 Bay State Road student services center and dining hall, and the Leventhal Admissions Reception Center.
