Emmanuel College, Boston, MA
Shaping an era of transformational change for Boston’s Emmanuel College
Goody Clancy has worked with Emmanuel College since the late 1990s to advance transformative changes across this urban campus nestled within Boston’s medical area. The first master plan, completed in 2000, established the framework that would allow Emmanuel, a private Catholic institution, to double its enrollment to 2,000 students and successfully transition to a co-educational institution. Investments in major new facilities were made possible by a creative funding strategy that leased surplus college land for private R&D development. In 2009, Goody Clancy developed a second master plan for Emmanuel, setting the stage for a new era of campus growth.
Our work with Emmanuel College has included:
- Planning for over 1.2 million SF of campus and private development in the heart of Boston’s medical, academic, and scientific research district
- Design of over 100,000 SF of academic and student life space, including the 57,000 SF Yawkey dining and recreation facility, and the 50,000 SF Science Center
- Renovation of Emmanuel’s historic 120,000 SF administration building to meet the college’s changing needs and to restore the building as Emmanuel’s spiritual and functional center
- Development of a rich open space network including an inviting quad at the heart of the campus on what was once a parking lot, and strong pedestrian links to destinations across campus and beyond
