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.
Permits have been filed for a 34-story building at 600 West 125th Street in Manhattanville. Located on the corner of Broadway and West 125th Street, the lot is steps away from the 125th Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. The Trustees of Columbia University is listed as the owner behind the applications.
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.
A new student residence is on the rise at 415 West 120th Street designed by architect Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel. Located in Morningside Heights, the property will rise 14 stories and contain 80 units for dedicated use by Columbia University.
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.
