Project Description
Northeastern University has submitted a Project Notification Form (PNF) for the redevelopment of the 262 St. Botolph Street site, which currently houses Matthews Arena and a surface parking lot. Northeastern proposes to construct a new, approximately 290,000 square foot (sf) multi-purpose facility (the “262 St. Botolph Street Multipurpose Athletic Facility”) that will support Northeastern’s athletic capabilities for its Division I athletes, intramural teams, and club sports. It is anticipated the new facility will provide an inviting and diverse space for current and future students and elevate the profile of collegiate athletics in Boston. As the first project within Northeastern’s new Institutional Master Plan (IMP), the Project will enhance the overall campus plan and aesthetically integrate with and complement the surroundings of this unique site while providing for Northeastern’s varsity athletics programs and student recreation programming.
