A main topic of this week's Harvard Allston Task Force was the unused buildings that Harvard owns in Allston. Harvard will now give 5+ year leases on many of these properties. They also expressed willingness to consider below-market rents for artists, non-profit organizations, or others that might merit such favorable treatment. The presentation Harvard gave is available here. Many of the areas shown in red in this map have available space. Click the map for a full-resoltion PDF.
Harvard Real Estate can be contacted at (617)384-7700 or firstname.lastname@example.org. A listing of properties in Allston is at http://www.hpre.harvard.edu/UC/UCWEB/Properties_Allston.html
Hopefully they will do more to advertise this opportunity such as advertisements in the Allston-Brighton TAB and posting "For Lease" signs at the applicable buildings.
