Boston College Campus Projects

FPA was 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 secured approvals for a new athletics village with an indoor baseball and softball facility, renovations of two historic buildings, rehabilitation of the Cardinal’s residence for an Art Museum, repurposing of an existing apartment building for student dormitories, and the construction of a new student residence hall on the main campus.

129 Lake Street was renovated and is being used for administrative offices. 2121 Commonwealth Avenue was 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 all complete. Construction of the Harrington Athletics Village was completed in 2018, while construction on the baseball and softball facilities, named the Pete Frates Center, commenced in summer 2019. 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. FPA guided these projects through the permitting process to a successful conclusion.
