Open House on future plans scheduled for Jan. 30
NYU will be holding another Open House regarding its 25-year campus plan on Wednesday, January 30th from 4-7 pm at Hemmerdinger Hall, 100 Washington Square East. The event will provide information about the University’s development plans as well as an opportunity for the public to provide feedback. We strongly urge you to attend — to find out more, and to let the University know that their #1 priority MUST be to cap new development in our neighborhood and to seek alternative locations for its continued growth.
GVSHP is a member of the Borough President’s Community Task Force on NYU Development, which has been helping to move the University towards agreements on appropriate approaches to, and limits on, development in our neighborhood. However, the University continues to assert that it must add an additional six million square feet of space over the next 25 years, and that half that amount must be in our neighborhood — the equivalent of seventeen more of NYU’s recently-built 26-story mega-dorms on East 12th Street. It is therefore CRITICAL that we continue to push for further limits on NYU’s planned growth in our neighborhood.
