    BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

    Northeastern University - Institutional Master Plan

    BU Data Sciences Center | 665 Commonwealth Avenue | BU Central

    Those buildings will be backfilled with something. BU's ever increasing research activity needs space. Despite BU owning most of the Kenmore Square area they still lease space in a few buildings there.
