Harvard University Institutional Master Plan Amendment Approved

28 Travis St West

An amendment to the existing Harvard University Institutional Master Plan, which includes a project at 28 Travis Street and renovations to the existing Bright Hockey Center and Gordon Indoor Track in Allston, has been unanimously approved by the Boston Redevelopment Authority Board.

The 28 Travis Street Project includes the renovation of an existing single-story warehouse building and the construction of a new single-story building. The project will serve as a temporary home for a number of existing institutional uses, including IT, mail and transportation services and the HUPD training facility, which are currently located at 219 Western Avenue. 

The project incorporates input from the City, BRA, the Harvard Allston Task Force, elected officials and neighbors.

Harvard has also affirmed its commitment to planning and interim improvements to an area north of Ray Mellone Park to be called Rena Park, and will provide Allston residents access to the Harvard Shuttle, contingent on conversations with the MBTA.

The IMP amendment also includes the Bright Arena Project, an interior renovation within the Bright Hockey Center and Gordon Indoor Track facilities within Harvard’s Athletics area.  This interior work will involve no increase in square footage or height.
