NYU Opens Academic Center
New York University opened a multipurpose academic facility at 1307 L Street last month with 75,000-square-feet and the first site outside of New York and its most recent addition to a network of teaching and research centers, now comprising 14 sites on five continents. The 12-story building includes six floors of dormitories and will ultimately house 120 students per semester enrolled in courses or pursuing internships and provide living and work space for faculty. The 60-foot wide site also features state-of-the-art classrooms, research space and a 140-seat auditorium. It is applying for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver certification for the building.
