Harvard University plans to soon unveil a new $100 million, seven-story building on its business school campus in Allston.
The university will host a ceremony Dec. 9 to formally dedicate Tata Hall, which features 180 dorm-style beds for the Business School’s Executive Education program as well as academic space.
The 150,000-square-foot facility is named after Tata Trusts and Companies, a philanthropic wing of India’s Tata Group, which gave a $50 million to help pay for the building. Ratan Tata, a 1975 graduate of the school’s advanced management program for senior executives, heads the Tata Group.
The donation, announced in the fall of 2010, was the largest from an international donor in the business school’s 105-year history.
Work on the project began two years ago. Located on the northeast corner of the school’s Allston campus, the arch-shaped stone and glass building along Soldiers Field Road overlooks the Charles River.
