North­eastern Uni­ver­sity said it is slated to meet with Boston’s zoning offi­cials Dec. 18 as the last step in the city’s approval process for the university’s insti­tu­tional master plan and a $225 mil­lion sci­ence and engi­neering building.

The pro­posed Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary Sci­ence and Engi­neering Building is part of the university’s master plan approved by the Boston Rede­vel­op­ment Authority last month. The master plan, which North­eastern ini­tially filed in December 2012, pro­poses a variety of new campus facil­i­ties, from aca­d­emic and research build­ings to stu­dent housing and parking.

The Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary Sci­ence and Engi­neering Building is slated to be built on a corner lot at Melnea Cass Boule­vard and Columbus Avenue, now used for parking. In a pre­vious master plan, North­eastern pro­posed a recre­ation facility on the same site, said Jim Chi­avelli, the university’s director of solu­tions planning.
