CREW Boston

The Real Estate Journey of Longwood Place

On Thursday, June 29th, CREW Boston’s Meds & Eds hosted a panelist discussion over breakfast on Longwood Place, an exciting and diverse 5.8-acre development located within the heart of the Longwood Medical Area. 
Moderated by Sarah McGilliicuddy, Associate Principal, Director of Business Development at BR+A , panelists included Nupoor Monani, Deputy Director of Master Planning and Policy at BPDA; Laura Brink Pisinski, VP of University Real Estate and Facilities Management at Simmons University; Russell DeMartino, Executive Vice President at Skanska, and Carolyn Desmond, Vice President of Development at Skanska. 

The panelists spoke about the journey of Longwood Place from actualizing Simmons vision of a unified campus to permitting the crown jewel parcel of land formerly home to Simmons residential campus. The project, in process for nearly ten years already, will not be fully realized until 2029.  Laura Brink Pisinski emphasized the integration of both Simmons mission to cultivate a fruitful academic environment as well as updating the overall community through this exceptional project. They discussed how Simmons is a value-driven institution and knew they would need buy-in from all stakeholders. The group conveyed both their passion and the collaborative nature of the project for the betterment of the city of Boston and all its inhabitants. Russ DeMartino and Carolyn Desmond spoke about the opportunity to create a front door to the Longwood/Fenway area which will provide much needed community access in the area.
Thanks again to our amazing panelists!  What a wonderful way to start the day!
