In 2010, The Bayside Expo Center went into foreclosure.  The plan was to demolish the center and redevelop it into space for the UMass campus.  On March 4, 2015, part of the roof of the building collapsed under the weight of snow during Boston’s record-setting winter of 2015.  A phased demolition of the building began and is still underway.
