New York University has revealed renderings of a new public health school set to debut as part of its Greenwich Village campus. Located three blocks east of Washington Square Park, the project will establish much-needed facilities for the university’s rapidly expanding School of Global Public Health which offers a multidisciplinary program preparing students to reinvent the world’s public health models.

The school will occupy two adjoining historic buildings at 404 Lafayette Street and 708 Broadway spanning a total of 147,000 square feet. When complete, students will have access to research and educational facilities, a conference center, collaborative workspaces, a fitness center, and on-site bike storage. The building will also include new office space and communal kitchen facilities.

The expansion was commissioned partially in response to a 108-percent surge in admissions in the past three years. Specific programming will include biostatistics, bioethics, epidemiology, global and environmental public health, public health nutrition, and policy management, as well as social and behavioral sciences.

“NYU Global Public Health is working in the United States and around the world to prevent and combat epidemics,” said NYU dean Cheryl Healton. “Their new home will bring together staff, faculty, and students under one roof for the first time as they continue the quest to educate the next generation of the front line in public health professionals, advance research to improve the world’s health and directly engage with agencies, communities, and governments to improve public health efforts globally.”

The design team includes Kliment Halsband Architects and Severud Associates Consulting Engineers with general contractor Suffolk Construction. The project is expected to debut by January 2021.

  1. The background of each person, I don’t know how good or bad it is. But now I can feel your generosity, for sharing the happiness of continuous improvement: Thank you so much.

  2. Is there a plan to restore the cornice to 402-408 Lafayette? It would go a long way toward making the building look whole again.

    Many feel that private universities should lose their tax status and have to pay more taxes . For NYU owns a lot of property pays little in taxes. NYU should of opened a food program for the Greenwich Village community during these hard times. Local restaurants could use the business. NYU has billions saved and should implement a $10 to $20 million dollar program to help the Greenwich Village residents get food from local restaurants. I contacted NYU and they declined to help out. Said to contact local politician .

  4. Someone always asks for a handout. Just give me because I want, deserved or not. The days of the older Italian working class tenants have long gone. What you have now are forigners and students of out of staters upper income people supporting the entire East, West Village and So-Ho and supporting those restaurants and mom and pops shops you are talking about. What was was and is no more. Also a goddly number of those students are on scolership. The world has changed.
