New York Escalates Academic Building Boom

With nearly $10 billion in construction expected over the next five years (in addition to the $4.2 billion spent over the last five), New York City is in the midst of a higher education building boom being led by investment in science and technology

"Institutions of higher learning in New York City are beginning construction programs to add millions of square feet in new classrooms, laboratories, performance halls and libraries over the next two decades at the cost of billions of dollars," reports J. Alex Tarquinio. "Several of the largest facilities are being built to focus on scientific research, which many credit to Mayor Michael Bloomberg's push to make the city a technology and research hub."

Tarquinio updates the progress of major projects being led by the City University of New York, Cornell University, Fordham University, and Columbia University.
