For the past several years, Columbia has been planning for a campus in the Manhattanville section of West Harlem, incorporating input provided through over a hundred meetings with community members, students, faculty, and civic groups. This new proposed campus, once approved, would resolve the University’s need for additional space while providing active ground floor retail opportunities, open space, and enhanced access to the waterfront.
The proposed area of development comprises approximately 6.8 million sq. ft. of new development over 17 acres and extends roughly from the south side of West 125th Street to 133rd Street and from Broadway to Twelfth Avenue. Also included are properties on the east side of Broadway from West 131st Street to 134th Street between Broadway and Old Broadway.
