At its final public meeting last week, Harvard officials promised residents not to build more than 185,000 square feet for the next 875 years. That is when the lease for the Arnold Arboretum's 265 acres will end.

"Yes, Harvard got their building, but the community got the protection that they were told three years ago would never happen," said Rob Consalvo, the city councilor who worked closely with residents and the mayor's office on the land deal.
