Construction is wrapping up on Columbia University‘s new two-building expansion on its Skidmore Owings & Merrill-planned Manhattanville campus. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with FXCollaborative, the Henry R. Kravis Building and the East Building, formerly known as the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Business Innovation, will yield a combined total of 450,000 square feet of classrooms, faculty offices, and lounge areas. Separating the two structures will be a landscaped public plaza and green space designed by James Corner Field Operations. The project site is bound by West 130th Street to the south, West 131st street to the north, the elevated Riverside Drive highway to the west, and Broadway to the east.
The White Plains Common Council recently approved the construction of a new 296-unit apartment complex near the city’s northwestern border. The complex is the latest project from BRP Companies, a Manhattan-based developer, and will occupy a 2.44-acre lot assemblage.
Permits have been filed for a 26-story mixed-use building at 69 Adams Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Located between Front and York Streets, the lot is one block from the York Street subway station, serviced by the F train. Rafael Rabinowitz under the Galaxy Developers LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Full demolition permits have been filed for 150 East 91st Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Located between Lexington and Third Avenues, the 5,033-square-foot site was acquired by Redeemer Presbyterian Church last year for $29.5 million.
Excavation and foundation work are underway at 600 West 125th Street, the site of a 34-story tower on Columbia University‘s Manhattanville campus. Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop with CetraRuddy Architecture as the executive architect and developed by the Trustees of Columbia University, the 391-foot-tall building will yield 175,000 square feet with 141,565 square feet of community facility space, 5,000 square feet of commercial space, and 142 residences for graduate students and faculty members. The property was once home to a McDonald’s and is located at West 125th Street and Broadway, directly across from The Forum and Wallach Art Gallery, also designed by Renzo Piano. LERA is the structural engineer for the project.
