The General Services Administration has selected the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to assist in the redevelopment project for the Transportation Department's John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
MIT will act as exchange partner for the project and help GSA pick a team to design a nearly 400,000-square-foot federal facility as a replacement for the Volpe Center, GSA said Thursday.
MIT will own parts of the 14-acre campus once the new facility is completed.
Volpe’s current campus houses six buildings, two parking areas and landscaped land.
GSA kicked off the bidding process for the redevelopment of the Volpe Center in June following a request for qualifications issued in June 2015 in consultation with DOT.
