Open House on future plans scheduled for Oct. 17

NYU will be holding another Open House on Wednesday, October 17th, from 4-7 pm, to present to the public their ongoing planning for the next 25 years (see here).  The Open House will take place at Hemmerdinger Hall, 100 Washington Square East (Waverly/Washington Place). While NYU has given indications over the last several months that they are working seriously to look for alternate locations outside of our neighborhoods for future expansions, the University nevertheless projects a need for an additional 6 million square feet of space over the next 25 years, and NYU President Sexton has said that he believes about half of that must go in our neighborhoods. Three million square feet is the equivalent of seventeen of their new 26-story mega-dorms on East 12th Street. That is why GVSHP continues to push NYU to remain within its existing footprint and envelope within our neighborhoods, and seek locations outside our neighborhood if future expansions are needed (see here). 

  • GVSHP urges you to attend the Open House on the 17th, to find out more and to let NYU know that finding locations OUTSIDE of our already oversaturated neighborhoods MUST be their #1 long-range planning priority.
