Banker & Tradesman Publishes Todd Symonds and Arjun Mande’s Article on BU Project

Banker & Tradesman recently published Associate Principals Todd Symonds and Arjun Mande’s article “Transformation of an Iconic Landmark in Back Bay.” Their article highlights Goody Clancy’s work on Boston University’s Certified LEED Gold Alan and Sherry Leventhal Admissions Reception Center. Todd, who expertly served as Project Manager, and Arjun, who bolstered the building’s design as Project Architect, describe the renovations and additions to a unique International-style 1953 building that resulted in a modern admissions center that maintains its historic integrity:

“The completed Alan & Sherry Leventhal Center, opened in 2014, incorporates not only the preservation and renewal of the original building’s shell and structure, but also announces bold modifications and discrete additions. It demonstrates how historic buildings can be given new life and meet an institution’s modern needs. Goody Clancy’s design respected the inherent clarity of the building’s form, while completely reimagining the interior to facilitate the flow of visitors – which now number nearly 80,000 per year.”

Great work—Todd, Arjun, and the rest of the Alan & Sherry Leventhal Center team! The results of your hard work are beautiful, practical, and historically sensitive!
