Construction is wrapping up at Renzo Piano's Jerome L. Greene Science Center, the first building for Columbia University's Manhattanville Campus expansion. Set to open Spring 2017, the 9-story, 450,000 square-foot building will bring together researchers from across the University including the Columbia University Medical Center, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. The ground floor will house the Center for Education and Outreach, a public education center focused on brain science that will serve the general public and K-12 schools.
The third RPBW building in Columbia University's master plan for the Manhattanville campus, the Academic Conference Center, has reached ground level. Located south of the Science Center, it will house a 400-seat auditorium and state-of-the-art seminar and meeting rooms inside a five-story structure.
