500 Huntington and the Sweeney to Parker move is back on. Just got this email...
Prior Proposal (2013):Dear Wentworth Alumni:
I am delighted to share with you today that Wentworth is engaging in two new exciting development projects.
1. Our athletic field is being relocated to Parker Street as part of a new athletic field space built over a parking deck located at 600 Parker Street. We will break ground on the new athletic field/parking garage this summer and are targeting 2023 for completion.
2. Wentworth and Huntington Development Group (HDG), a joint venture of The Fallon Company, Owens Companies, and Waldwin Development Company, have reached agreement to develop 500 Huntington Avenue, a vital part of Wentworth’s Institutional Master Plan. Initial plans for this 640,000 sq.-ft. mixed-use life sciences facility will support retail, dining, and commercial space for the community.
Both projects will play a key role in securing the university’s future as a cutting-edge, hands-on center for educational opportunity and a high-quality student experience. These multi-year projects will be transformational for Wentworth and will greatly impact our students, faculty, staff, and our surrounding community, particularly Mission Hill and Fenway.
I will continue to keep you updated as the development process moves forward.
Mark A. Thompson, Ph.D.
