Harvard's land + MIT's money

As Harvard slows down construction in Allston, MIT wants to build 400,000 square feet of office/lab space with ground-floor retail to replace the parking lot at 650 Main Street in Cambridge (just 1.5 miles from Harvard's hole in the ground). Harvard and MIT know how to collaborate on life sciences - they have been doing it for years at the Broad Institute.

If Cambridge neighbors don't want this new MIT building and Harvard alone can't afford to finish construction of the Science Complex, maybe Harvard and MIT could figure out a way to join forces to complete and occupy the Science Complex and everyone wins.
