Construction has made impressive progress at the new campus for Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island. Since last month's update, steel erection Morphosis' Bloomberg Center has reached the fourth floor, with only the rooftop canopy left to be installed. Weiss/Manfredi's co-location building, known as the Bridge at Cornell Tech, has surpassed the fifth floor with its steel superstructure. At the Hudson Companies' 26-story residential tower for graduate students, concrete superstructure has reached the 11th floor. Designed by Handel Architects, the tower will be the world's tallest project built to the Passive House standards for energy efficiency. Phase One looks to be on track for its mid 2017 opening date.
