Columbia Manhattanville Campus Takes Shape

As the first two buildings of Columbia’s new Manhattanville campus near completion, our friends at Field Condition visited the site of Upper Manhattan’s newest mega-project to document the progress. Construction has wrapped up on the Lenfest Center for the Arts and the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, while the last building of the first phase—The Academic Conference Center—has begun façade  installation. Designed by Dattner Architects and Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the Academic Conference Center will serve as the gateway to the new Manhattanville Campus, and will feature a 400-seat auditorium, additional break-out and meeting rooms, faculty offices, and open gathering spaces, including a public garden, cafe, and information center.

When fully completed, the campus will span more than 17 acres in the Manhattanville neighborhood, and will be the nation’s first university plan designated Stage 1 LEED Platinum under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Neighborhood Development pilot rating system.
