NYU encouraged to expand into Long Island City

The Economic Development Corporation has suggested NYU expand into Long Island City, an idea NYU administrators have rejected because they believe that area to be too underdeveloped residentially. The suggestion from the EDC follows NYU’s fifth open house on expansion, which The Real Deal first reported would include a controversial proposal to build a high-rise development in addition to the three existing I.M. Pei Silver Towers in Washington Square Village. The proposal was part of NYU’s plans to expand by 6 million square feet by 2031.
