An Invitation to Connect, Engage, Explore

A onetime industrial zone five blocks north of Columbia’s historic Morningside Heights campus is being reimagined for the next century as an open, welcoming place of tree-lined sidewalks, accessible green spaces, art galleries and performance venues, lively storefronts and community education centers, connecting West Harlem to a revitalized Hudson River waterfront.

Knowledge Across Traditional Boundaries

Fulfilling a great university’s mission of discovering solutions to our society’s most pressing challenges requires a new kind of shared space where creative minds across many academic disciplines can collaborate in research and study, in shared inspiration and experimentation.
