Construction continues at the new campus for Cornell Tech on Roosevelt Island. Steel erection is complete at Morphosis' Bloomberg Center and Weiss/Manfredi's co-location building, known as the Bridge at Cornell Tech. Façade installation has begun at the west façade of the Bloomberg Center. At the Hudson Companies' 26-story residential tower for graduate students, facade panel installation has reached the half way mark. 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.
