Boston Magazine Asks, Is Emerson College the Smartest Developer in Town?

Boston Magazine posed the question, “Is Emerson College the Smartest Developer in Town?” in its November issue, as the College has many large-scale projects ongoing that are enlivening downtown Boston, and at the same time preserving elements of the past and enhancing the neighborhood.

We’re not simply building for Emerson,” says school president Lee Pelton, adding that the intention is to make that corner of the Common a destination, with food, theater, and services that benefit everyone. “If I may borrow a phrase from the great Reggie Jackson, Emerson is the straw that stirs the drink.”

The Little Building residence hall reopened at the corner of Boylston and Tremont streets this fall, with retail occupants expected in 2020, alongside the sidewalk expansion project on Boylston Street underway right now.
