Building for the Next Sixty Years
As the College begins its second 60 years, we look forward to the new academic complex that will soon be under construction at the corner of Tillary and Jay Streets. On the site of the current gym and auditorium will be an academic complex of approximately 300,000 square feet that will house programs in the sciences and health-related areas. For the first time, these growing programs will have teaching and laboratory space built specifically to meet their needs. The building will benefit from the participation of the celebrated architect Renzo Piano. It will be CUNY's first public-private partnership to develop academic facilities, and will provide attractive, modern space to a rapidly growing college.
At the same time, the College's Voorhees Building, the center for the engineering technologies, will receive a makeover, changing it into a sleek icon of the Information Age. The new face of the building will make it clear that it is a place where you can create the future and can learn the technological skills necessary to thrive in it.
