New York Escalates Academic Building Boom
"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."
