CornellNYC Tech — a collaboration between Cornell University and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology —  sent out a request for expressions of interest to an unspecified number of developers for three different projects on its Roosevelt Island campus, Crain’s reported. The developments include a conference center/hotel, a residence for faculty, staff and students and a technology industry-related commercial property.

Although a complete list of companies contacted about the projects is unknown, Rudin Management, Related, Gotham Organization and Douglaston Development were among those approached by the university, according to Crain’s.

“Cornell is committed to pursuing innovative partnerships to develop the non-academic components of the tech campus, buildings that are critical to creating a vibrant, active campus and fulfilling our goal of connecting academic teaching and research with industry innovation,” Cathy Dove, CornellNYC Tech vice president, told Crain’s “We’ve already heard terrific feedback and interest, and we look forward to receiving responses from some of New York’s many experienced developers.”

The deadline for the responses to the request is in August. Formal requests for proposals are scheduled to go out later this year, with a completion date for the buildings expected in 2017. [Crain’s]
