Zone 3 – Harvard University

Allston Initiative, Harvard University

Graffito has worked with Harvard University since 2015 to develop and execute ground floor activation, urban design, and short and long-term retail leasing strategies for Harvard-owned assets along Western Avenue in North Allston. Much of this work centers around Zone3, a Graffito-developed and -managed initiative of placemaking programs, events, public art, and retail experiments. Additionally, Graffito has executed a number of other real estate and retail studies to support long-term Harvard planning in Allston.
