Faust Denies Rethinking Allston Plans - Harvard Crimson
Faust said that while there were no factual errors in the Globe’s story, it mischaracterized her approach to Allston as “a dramatic change of direction.”
Faust said that Harvard is now “moving from a phase where we were setting a big framework into a stage where we are refining those aspirations.”
“I think its natural that we consult more broadly with the...Allston community, with deans, and really make sure we have very full planning before we actually break ground on new projects,” said Harvard Provost Steven Hyman.
Boston Globe Correction: Because of a designer's error, a map accompanying a Page One story yesterday on a Harvard University expansion plan did not show properties more recently acquired by Harvard, including the 48-acre CSX rail yards and several smaller properties on Western Avenue.
