Vice President Discusses University Expansion Plan

7/7/2008

John Nucci, vice president for external affairs at Suffolk University, recently discussed the University's development plans on NECN and on WGBH.

Chet Curtis interviewed Nucci July 7 on New England Cable News, and Nucci appeared on the “Greater Boston” show with Emily Rooney on Tuesday, July 1, 2008.

These discussions focused on the Boston Redevelopment Authority’s recent approval of the University’s 10-year Master Plan that paves the way for development of the 20 Somerset St. academic building and the Modern Theater residence hall project.

The Institutional Master Plan, or IMP, sets a planning framework for University expansion over the next 10 years, and BRA approval allows the University to begin work on several fronts.

Construction on the Modern Theater project is expected to begin in fall 2008, with the combined residence hall and theater projected to open in fall 2010.

The University also will be working on design and permitting for the New England School of Art & Design art studios and classrooms at 20 Somerset St., the site of the former MDC headquarters.
