Harvard buys land for development, sends in the wrecking ball immediately, and lets it sit there as construction projects languish.
MIT decades ago bought land they won't need for 150 years; meanwhile they've leased it for 99 years to a developer who's completed an award-winning, innovative mixed-use residential/hotel/retail/biotech office/lab space.
