New York University has plans to immediately begin expansion projects on two so-called “superblocks,” as part of its overarching goal to add as much as 2 million square feet of space to its campus in Washington Square. The plans, among those recently leaked, which detailed the school’s 25-year plan to build on Governors Island, among other places, would involve adding around 240,000 square feet of development a year. The two superblocks would be located between West 3rd and Houston streets, and Mercer Street and La Guardia Place, according to the Villager. The plans include a buildup of more student housing, as the school aims to up the percentage of students in housing to 60 percent from 54 percent.
