Rockefeller University River Campus

Construction is well underway on the expansion of Rockefeller University in the Lenox Hill neighborhood on the Upper East Side. Designed by Vinoly, the project straddles the FDR highway with a prefab structure whose modules have been brought to the site by barge. This five-story main structure, which spans the highway for four blocks from East 64th to East 68th Street, will house laboratory research facilities and be known as the Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Research Building. A dining commons, academic center, conference center, and gardens will be located atop the research facility.
