Press Release

Columbia University ︎︎︎
RPBW ︎︎︎
Columbia University is constructing a new 34-story building to house graduate students and faculty members on the southwest corner of 125th Street and Broadway. The new building will be comprised of approximately 177,000 square feet and include 142 apartments and 5,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level, which will be occupied by returning lessee, McDonald’s.
The project follows the design, construction and sustainability principles established for the Manhattanville campus across the street. It aims to enhance the human-scale experience with active ground floor retail use, transparent storefront façade that promotes safety and connectivity at the urban layer, and slender building volume that provides for light and air with its generous setbacks.
