Boston University is doing everything that it can to ensure that its facilities are up to date with the lofty expectations that any world-class University would have. Just recently they announced their plans to either build or renovate various plots of their one hundred and twelve acre territory spread throughout the city.
In The Fenway and Kenmore areas, the University is aiming to embark on nine different projects all within the next ten years. One of these proposals include a new eleven story dorm for five hundred and forty-three students that will cozy up next to the other newer towers behind the Agganis Arena. Other goals that are necessary to achieve is to put a three hundred and forty car parking lot underground at Babcock Field, the renovation of the over ninety-year-old Miles Standish Hall that houses six hundred and sixty students, building an eleven story academic building from the ground up that will be at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and Granby Street. Finally, another development worth mentioning is the renovation of the 1960s built School of Law on Commonwealth Avenue in addition to adding 125,000 square feet to the facility.
Due to the fact that none of these above or any of the total nine plans for construction have released any concrete dates for an expected completion nor figures for how much this master plan will cost, it seems inevitable that many of these will take a considerable amount of time, up to a decade
