Monday, Columbia University dedicated a satellite campus on 17 acres in New York’s West Harlem neighborhood. Known as the Manhattanville Campus, the $6.3 billion development, which sits about a mile north of the Ivy League school’s main gates, will eventually comprise 6.8 million square feet of academic space. Officials hope the new facilities will help the university maintain its competitive edge. “We had to expand to have a future,” said Lee Bollinger, Columbia’s president, at a press event held in conjunction with the dedication.
