A pair of glass-clad buildings are quickly taking shape on Columbia University’s new Manhattanville campus. Formally named the Henry R. Kravis Building and the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Business Innovation, the two steel-framed structures will contain 450,000 square feet of classrooms, faculty offices, and lounge areas, and will feature multiple double-height spaces. Turner Construction Company is in charge of building the project designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with FXCollaborative.
Progress on the steel superstructure is moving quickly on the first of the Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed pair of buildings on Columbia University’s new Manhattanville campus. These will be formally named the Henry R. Kravis Building and the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Business Innovation, and construction can easily seen from the nearby 125th Street subway station. The project will yield over 450,000 square feet of classrooms, faculty offices, lounge areas, and double-height spaces that will overlook outdoor green spaces.
Columbia University’s Manhattanville Campus expansion, in Harlem, is one of the biggest new developments underway in New York City, though it may not look it at the moment. Construction is continuing in phases, and today, YIMBY has the latest photos of progress at the new three-story academic conference center, as shot by Tectonic.
Construction is now two stories above street level on Columbia University’s three-story, 55,980-square-foot University and Academic Conference Center at 3205 Broadway, located on the corner of West 125th Street in Harlem’s Manhattanville section. Steel beam construction can be seen thanks to an update by Harlem+Bespoke. The new building will include an information center, two auditoriums, offices, meeting rooms and a café.
Construction is nearly complete on Columbia University’s nine-story, 557,149-square-foot Jerome L. Green Science Center building, located at 605 West 129th Street, on the corner with Broadway in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. The facility was built as the first phase of Columbia’s Manhattanville campus expansion.
