Now that construction is wrapping up on the first phase of Cornell Tech‘s Roosevelt Island campus, and opening is expected in the summer of 2017, per Crain’s, officials are moving ahead with additional pieces of the master plan. Plans were recently presented to Community Board 8 for the Executive Education Center and Hotel, DNAinfo reported.

The building will include four 50- to 75-seat classrooms and a 195-key hotel. The hotel will feature a restaurant and a café, and the education center will have conference rooms and a buffet lounge. The two components will be connected by a main hall. The plans must be approved by the Public Design Commission, among other city agencies.

Hudson Companies, Related Companies, and Forest City Ratner Companies are all taking development roles in the overall project, while Morphosis Architecture, Weiss/Manfredi Architecture, and Snøhetta are taking parts in the design process. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is the master planner.

10 Comments on "Reveal For Cornell Tech’s Executive Education Center & Hotel Building, Roosevelt Island"

  1. Very popular today with reveal and renderings, that coming to the building on classrooms and hotel.

  2. A true mess. Little different from a third-rate sunbelt office park. An embarrassment to Cornell and no positive contribution to either the skyline(s) or the character / cohesion of Roosevelt Island. Who on earth approved the use of a planning grid shifted to a perceived “45 degrees”— talk about tired, tired cliches! The whole loudly telegraphs disjointed “worlds fair schlock”.

    Long concrete greet and angle enters tech. How to teach is answer for falling leaves. Dead tree.

  4. This ruins the views completely from the bridge. Who, in their right mind, could approve something so large and ugly? Should have kept it at least to bridge level. Nasty. Politics at play.

  5. Tragic. Looks like a suburban industrial park.
    Some architect sold them a “bill of goods”.
    Looks awful from East 57th St.

  6. Love this , so well designed .
    A great addition to NYC

    Skidmore, Owings & Merrill should be embarrass by this. They were once known as a great Architectural firm. Today it looks like a first grader design piece of excrement. SHAME on them.
