Since façade installation was underway earlier this year on Columbia University Medical Center’s 15-story, 107,299 square-foot Medical and Graduate Education Building at 104 Haven Avenue, in Washington Heights, construction has wrapped up entirely. Photos of the completed 196-foot-tall building can be seen in a Curbed NY report. The new academic building will feature a lobby and café on the ground floor, a piano room and a 275-seat auditorium on the second and third floors, and a mix of lecture halls, classrooms, offices, and laboratories on the fourth through 14th floors. Diller Scofidio + Renfro is the design architect, while Gensler Architects is serving as the architect of record. The facility will open on August 16.

Last September, glass installation was well underway at Columbia University’s 15-story, 107,299 square-foot Medical College Graduate & Education Building at 104 Haven Avenue, in Washington Heights. The 196-foot-tall structure is now fully clad, seen in recent photos by Tectonic. When the building opens later this year, it will contain mostly academic classrooms and facilities, but will also feature an auditorium, a café, and lounge/study space. Diller Scofidio + Renfro designed the building, which is attempting to achieve LEED Gold certification, according to Curbed. Gensler Architects served as the architect of record.
Since topping out late last year, Columbia University’s 15-story, 196-foot tall Medical and Graduate Education Building, at 104 Haven Avenue, in Washington Heights, has been quietly underway, and now the building is nearly completely clad in glass, per Curbed. The building measures 107,300 square feet in total, and 80,768 square feet will be dedicated to academics, meeting spaces, offices and laboratories. Diller, Scofidio + Renfro is designing, and Gensler is serving as the architect of record. The project is expected to be complete next year.
