The Harvard Allston Land Co. (HALC) today issued a request for proposals (RFP) for the initial phase of the Enterprise Research Campus (ERC) in Allston. The RFP will focus on the 14-acre portion of the ERC on Western Avenue, adjacent to the new Science and Engineering Complex slated to open in the fall of 2020, and across the street from Harvard Business School.Harvard envisions an ERC that will complement the cutting-edge institutional research taking place on its campus and throughout the region, that will seamlessly integrate into the emerging corridor of creativity along Western Avenue, and that will contribute to a thriving community in a neighborhood that combines academia and education, engaging public and community spaces, and the arts and sciences, in ways that drive economic growth and innovation. The RFP is an important next step in realizing this transformational vision.“Allston will enable Harvard to lead in the knowledge and innovation economy,” said President Larry Bacow. “The work that will be done in the ERC will have long-lasting effects on the development of Harvard’s campus and the broader community, sparking and shaping enterprises that will drive progress in many fields to the great benefit of humanity.”Envisioned as a mixed-use development — including office, lab, research, residential, retail, enhanced public realm, and publicly accessible open spaces as well as public art projects — the ERC will be a cornerstone of Harvard’s commitment to enhance the area in support of its teaching and research mission. It will increase the interconnectivity between the Harvard campus, the neighborhood, and the Greater Boston region.“The ERC’s location creates opportunities to further strengthen the region in exciting and unexpected ways,” said Nitin Nohria, chair of HALC’s governing board and dean of Harvard Business School. “We hope and expect the ERC will foster new collaborations between Harvard, other universities, research institutions, businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, and the region’s robust life sciences community, as well as with global entities.”The RFP will allow HALC and the University to evaluate market interest and new ideas that can contribute to this transformational vision. It is a logical next step anticipated when HALC was first announced late last year.,Through the RFP process, HALC will solicit proposals for how this area can best strengthen and complement the region. The RFP will help ensure that the ERC will build upon a robust existing innovation ecosystem.“The RFP is open and available to all qualified developers and development teams that have a proven track record realizing projects of this type, scope, and scale,” said HALC’s CEO, Thomas P. Glynn. “Our goal is to cast as wide a net as possible to ensure that we involve new people, new groups, and new ideas. Receiving a diverse group of proposals from teams with diverse backgrounds and diverse locations is absolutely critical to ensuring the very best ideas. We’re confident that this approach will yield best-in-class developers, providing us with the ideal partner as we move forward.”This initial phase is consistent with what was outlined during the public process in the spring of 2018, when the Boston Planning and Development Agency board voted to approve a Planned Development Area (PDA) Master Plan for an initial development phase of a total of 900,000 gross square feet (GSF) on the 14 acres on Western Avenue, which includes approximately 400,000 GSF of office and lab space, 250,000 GSF of residential space, and a 250,000 GSF hotel and conference center.The plans are also consistent with past University planning efforts, and align with the goals outlined in the city of Boston’s own master plan, “Imagine Boston 2030,” where the ERC and Beacon Park Yard, the area immediately to the south, were included among several locations citywide for “expanded neighborhoods.”There are no proposed projects at present, nor any identified tenants. HALC’s goal is to have a developer identified by December.The ERC represents the latest step in Harvard’s growing presence in Allston. It builds on the entrepreneurial faculty of Harvard Business School, the innovation labs cluster, Athletics, the newly opened ArtLab, and the Science and Engineering Complex (SEC). Additionally, the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) will eventually move into a new state-of-the-art research and performance center in Allston. This mix of culture and entrepreneurship will provide the intellectual seed capital to attract leading-edge companies to the ERC, fostering creative collaboration and closer ties to Harvard’s research and teaching mission. Harvard forms subsidiary to advance Enterprise Research Campus As planning continues for the state Department of Transportation I-90 project, Harvard remains deeply engaged and continues to work closely with the administrations of Governor Charlie Baker and Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the community, and others, through participation in I-90 Task Force meetings. The University firmly believes that the project, which is directly adjacent to the ERC, represents a generational opportunity for transformation and has the potential to improve connectivity between neighborhoods, enhance mobility of all kinds across Allston and the region, and unlock development and place-making opportunities important to Harvard and the region. In Allston, the ArtLab rises HBS dean, former Massport chief share leadership vision for 36-acre Allston project Multipurpose space will host exhibitions, films, dance, and more The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news.

By Jackie SosbyGeorgia Department of Agricultureand Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaGeorgia just increased its agroterrorism preparedness anotherlevelby launching the local phase of the Agrosecurity Awareness TrainingJuly 1.”Whether it’s a natural disaster, an animal disease, foodcontamination or a deliberate act of agroterrorism, the peoplewho complete the training will know how to recognize something iswrong, who to call and what to do if it occurs,” said GeorgiaDepartment of Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin. “The ultimategoal is to make sure that Georgia agriculture and food are safe andsecure.”Georgia’s Homeland Security Task Force Agroterrorism Committeesponsors the training program which is being delivered across thestate by University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agents. Thecommittee is chaired by Lee Myers, state veterinarian and assistantcommissioner of animal industry for the Georgia Department ofAgriculture.Trainings across the stateUp to 3,500 agriculture first responders are expected toreceive training over the next six months. The goal is to providebasic agrosecurity awareness training to people across Georgiawho would likely mobilize during an agrosecurity incident.”We were the first state to include local jurisdictions in ourstatewide homeland security agriculture assessment,” Irvin said.”We knew we had to get down to the local level to adequately builda proper defense against agroterrrorism.”UGA and partners from government agencies developed the trainingwith a grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Thecurriculum includes textbooks, presentations and a website withmaterials and information about the one-day training sessions.”This training, which is already considered a nationalmodel,helps address how we will safeguard Georgia’s agriculturalsector and food supply, both key components of our criticalinfrastructure,” said OHS-GEMA Director Mike Sherberger.County agents will conductUGA Extension agents, who will conduct one-day trainingsessions intheir communities, were trained this spring. Potential participantsinclude traditional first responders, such as law enforcement,firefighters and EMS, as well as farmers, veterinarians, foodprocessing managers, grocery store managers and others engaged inagriculture or agribusiness.”UGA Cooperative Extension is in a unique position to provideeducational training, especially on issues of agrosecurity,” saidDon Hamilton, UGA Extension’s homeland security coordinator. “Ourrepresentatives are on the front lines of food and agriculture eachday serving as expert eyes and ears across the state.”Hamilton says once trained, class participants will betterknow howto spot an agrosecurity incident and what to do if an incidentoccurs.”We’re educating folks on the value of agriculture in our state,and our ultimate aim is to make sure Georgia’s agriculture is safeand secure,” he said. “That’s a full-time job.”Hamilton said agrosecurity incidents can range from aterrorist actto someone unknowingly bringing an agricultural disease into thecountry.Not just terrorist acts”Agrosecurity incidents aren’t limited to manmade or terroristevents,” he said. “They encompass almost any event in the food andagriculture arena that would affect human health and theagricultural economy.”Incidents include natural disasters, he said, which UGA Extensionis already traditionally prepared to handle.”The way emergencies are handled is essentially the same whetherit’s manmade or something from Mother Nature,” Hamilton said.”Our county Extension agents are an essential part of theagrosecurity process,” he said, “because we have a smooth systemfor disseminating information during times of disaster. These newtrainings will further strengthen local communities’ capabilitiesin the event of an incident.”If you are a potential first responder and want to sign up for anagrosecurity training session, visit the program Web site atwww.agrosecurity.uga.edu or call your local UGA Extension agent.
Chittenden Corporation (NYSE: CHZ) Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Paul A. Perrault,announced third quarter 2003 net income of $0.54 per diluted share,compared to the $0.48 per diluted share earned in the third quarter of 2002.For the first nine months of 2003, earnings were $1.54 per diluted share,compared to $1.41 a year ago. Chittenden also announced its quarterly dividendof $0.20 per share. The dividend will be paid on November 14, 2003, toshareholders of record on October 31, 2003.In making the announcement, Perrault said, “I am extremely pleased withour progress in organizing ourselves to be most responsive to our customers,shareholders, and employees, and with the financial results that we haveachieved at the same time. With our early-summer decision to migrate to a newinformation technology platform, work has begun in earnest to convert all ofour banks by the second quarter of next year. I am pleased to report that weare on schedule to meet that objective. The end result will be greatereffectiveness in serving our customers, enhanced efficiencies in our processesand lower costs associated with providing that service.”On February 28, 2003, Chittenden completed its acquisition of GraniteBank, a $1.1 billion commercial bank headquartered in Keene, NH for $123million in cash and approximately 4.4 million shares of Chittenden stockvalued at $116 million. This transaction was accounted for as a purchase and,accordingly, Granite Bank’s operations are reflected in Chittenden’sconsolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition.Total loans increased $85 million from June 30, 2003, due to increases inmunicipal, commercial real estate and construction loans. The increase inmunicipal loans reflects a seasonal trend, as the second quarter ishistorically the low point for municipal borrowings, coinciding with theborrowers’ fiscal year-ends. Commercial real estate loans increased $50million from June 30th with growth throughout Chittenden’s markets. TheCompany’s residential real estate portfolio declined $43 million due tocontinued heavy prepayments emanating from the decline in long term interestrates which hit their recent lows in the second quarter of 2003. This declinewas substantially offset by growth in construction loans due to the financingof several projects within Chittenden’s commercial customer base, continuing atrend that has been seen for the last several quarters.Total deposits increased $151 million from June 30th to $5.0 billion atSeptember 30, 2003. The increase was driven primarily by higher activity indemand, savings and money market/cash management accounts associated withmunicipal and commercial customers. The Company’s deposit base primarilyconsists of demand, savings and NOW accounts, which comprise 46% of totaldeposits and have an average weighted cost of 0.20%, and money market/cashmanagement accounts which comprise 32% of total deposits and have an averageweighted cost of 0.73%. Borrowings declined $159 million to $240 million atSeptember 30, 2003, primarily as a result of the early redemption of FHLBborrowings and customer repurchase agreements.The operating net interest margin for the third quarter of 2003 was 4.11%compared to 4.14% for the second quarter of 2003. In addition to scheduledamortization of Granite’s purchase accounting adjustments to loans, deposits,and borrowings which reduced net interest income by $900,000, the Companyrecognized accelerated amortization of $1.7 million in the third quarterprimarily due to heavy prepayments on Granite’s residential mortgages. Thenet interest margin for the third quarter, including the accelerated purchaseaccounting amortization, was 3.98%. Net interest income was $54.7 million forthe third quarter of 2003 and $49.7 million for the same period a year ago.The increase was driven by a larger balance sheet, as average-earning assetsincreased $1.1 billion to $5.5 billion in 2003 due primarily to the Graniteacquisition.Net charge-offs as a percentage of average loans were 1 basis point in thethird quarter and 8 basis points in the first nine months of 2003 compared to10 basis points and 20 basis points for the respective periods in 2002. Netcharge-off activity on a year-to-date basis totaled $3.1 million compared with$6.1 million in 2002. Nonperforming assets were $18.0 million at September30, 2003 unchanged from June 30, 2003 and as a percentage of total loansdecreased to 48 basis points compared to 49 basis points a quarter ago and 54basis points for the third quarter of 2002. As a percentage of loans, theallowance for loan losses was 1.57%, which was consistent with the lastseveral quarters.Noninterest income was $25.0 million for the third quarter of 2003 downfrom $29.8 million for the second quarter and up from $13.8 million for thesame period a year ago. The change from the second quarter was primarily dueto fluctuations in securities gains, impairments on mortgage servicing rights,and losses on prepayments of borrowings. Excluding these items, noninterestincome grew approximately $1.6 million on a linked-quarter basis. Gains onsales of loans increased $860,000 from the second quarter of 2003 due to aslightly higher margin on mortgage loans sold and insurance commissions wereup $610,000 primarily due to higher levels of performance based commissions.Compared with the third quarter of a year ago, increases were also seen inservice charges on deposit accounts due to the Granite Bank acquisition, aswell as investment management income, and retail investment services. TheCompany realized $3.3 million of gains on sales of securities compared to $9.7million during the second quarter of 2003 and $6 thousand in the comparablequarter of 2002. Partially offsetting the securities gains recognized in thecurrent quarter were losses of $2.1 million associated with the prepayment ofborrowings. In addition, mortgage servicing income was $2.1 million higher ona linked-quarter basis and $2.2 million higher from the same quarter of 2002due to recoveries recognized in the current quarter associated with the fairvalue of the Company’s serviced loan portfolio, net of continued heavyamortization of those assets. During the third quarter the Company recognizedapproximately $3.3 million in impairment recoveries versus $3.5 million inamortization expense on its mortgage servicing rights.Noninterest expenses decreased $7.4 million from the second quarter of2003 and increased $9.9 million from the third quarter of 2002. The increasein noninterest expenses from the same period a year ago were primarily aresult of the Granite Bank acquisition which contributed approximately $4.0million in salary and benefits expenses, $1.2 million of net occupancy expenseand $1.5 million of other noninterest expenses. The decrease from the secondquarter of 2003 was largely due to $6.8 million in non-recurring chargesaccrued in the second quarter related to the Company’s decision to convert itscore data processing system and lower compensation expense due to reductionsin staffing.Effective income tax rates for 2003 were 35.4% for the third quarter and36.2% year to date compared to 34.7% for both respective periods in 2002. Thehigher effective rates in 2003 are due primarily to a larger proportion of theCompany’s taxable income being generated in New Hampshire. The lowereffective tax rate in the third quarter of 2003 versus year-to-date was due tothe recognition of the settlement of tax assessments by the MassachusettsDepartment of Revenue relating to the taxation of Real Estate InvestmentTrusts. This settlement benefited the current quarter’s provision byapproximately $250,000.The return on average equity was 14.19% for the third quarter of 2003,compared with 13.34% for the second quarter and 15.36% in the same quarter of2002. This decline from a year ago is primarily due to the issuance ofadditional equity in the Granite acquisition. The return on average assetsfor the third quarter of 2003 was 1.32%, flat with the third quarter of 2002and up from 1.26% for the second quarter of 2003.
