Construction continues at the new campus for Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island. Steel erection at Morphosis' Bloomberg Center appears to have topped out with the addition of the structure for the rooftop canopy. Weiss/Manfredi's co-location building, known as the Bridge at Cornell Tech, also appears to have topped out with its steel superstructure. At the Hudson Companies' 26-story residential tower for graduate students, concrete superstructure has reached the 20th floor, within a few floors of its final height. 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.
