Boston’s Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology selling South End campus

School hopes to fetch a price that allows it to expand elsewhere in Boston

Boston’s Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology is selling its South End campus in a bid to raise funds to expand elsewhere in Boston.

The nearly one-acre, three-building campus at Berkeley and Appleton streets sits amid one of the busiest areas in the region in terms of development the past several years. A buyer could conceivably join that development rush, though any project would need city approval as well as probably the blessing of residents.

Benjamin Franklin Institute President Anthony Benoit told the Globe’s Tim Logan that the school will not really start the sales process until it has a better sense of where it will end up in expanded form. That could come in the spring.

It hopes to relocate by the fall of 2022. Stay tuned.
