Cornell breaks ground on Roosevelt Island campus

Cornell University, along with New York City leaders and members of the University's development and project teams, celebrated the groundbreaking of Cornell Tech’s campus on Roosevelt Island and announced a $100 million gift from Bloomberg Philanthropies to fund construction of the campus. The innovative new campus opens summer 2017. U3 Advisors was on hand to join in the celebration.

U3A’s New York office served as consultant to Cornell in the University’s successful quest to win the Bloomberg administration’s competition to attract a world-class applied sciences and engineering campus to New York City, and continues to serve as real estate advisor in implementing the 2 million square foot campus.
