Back in October of 2014, YIMBY reported that construction was wrapping up on Columbia University’s nine-story, 450,000-square-foot Jerome L. Greene Science Center at 3229 Broadway, between West 129th and 130th Streets, in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. It was the first building to rise within Columbia’s new 17-acre Manhattanville campus. Later that year, the single-story structures on the triangular lot immediately to the south were demolished in preparation for Columbia’s three-story, 55,890-square-foot academic conference center. Harlem+Bespoke now has a rendering of that building, located at 3205 Broadway. The building will include a café, an information center, offices, meeting rooms, and two auditoriums. Excavation work is reportedly underway and completion of the building is expected in 2018. Renzo Piano Building Workshop is the design architect and Dattner Architects is the architect of record.
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.
