New York University has released designs for its new, 170,000-square-foot building at 433 First Avenue and 26th Street in the Health Corridor, the New York Observer reported. The building, set to open in 2015, will house an expansion of NYU’s dental school, will create space for a new multi-school bioengineering program, and will become the new home to the NYU nursing school which is currently located in Washington Square.

EYP Architecture & Engineering designed the building with and Kohn, Pedersen, Fox Associates; it was imagined to relieve pressure on the already space-constrained university in Greenwich Village, which often finds itself in hot water with neighbors, the Observer said.

The university has been making moves to expand its real estate holdings of late. It’s still pushing to get its Downtown Brooklyn tech campus approved by the Bloomberg administration and yesterday had its Greenwich Village expansion certified by the City Planning Commission.
