While the battle for New York University’s growth within Greenwich Village wages on, the school quietly took two significant steps towards completing the majority of its expansion, which is taking place outside of the core campus. The university chose EYP Architecture & Engineering and Kohn, Pedersen, Fox Associates to design a new building that will house the College of Nursing, the College of Dentistry, and a new bioengineering program. The 170,000-square-foot structure will rise along NYU’s existing First Avenue campus that extends from 24th to 34th streets, at 433 First Avenue near 26th Street. Meanwhile, NYU’s engineering affiliate, the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, will expand into 120,000 square feet of space at Forest City Ratner’s MetroTech Center in Brooklyn. The 20-year lease accounts for the ninth and 10th floors of 2 MetroTech and the sixth floor of 15 MetroTech, which will house the Computer Science and Engineering and the Electrical and Computer Engineering departments. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz said in a statement that he welcomes the expansion, as the school’s presence will “put Downtown Brooklyn on the map as a top destination for cutting edge technology and research” and will be boost local businesses.
