Building the Science Building
NYU Langone’s Science Building will be a new facility encompassing more than 365,000 square feet and 10 floors of laboratory space dedicated to research, including wet laboratory space, core facilities, a new vivarium, conference spaces, and public amenities in an expansive, integrated environment. Positioned at 30th Street and the FDR Service Road, just south of the Joan and Joel Smilow Research Center, the Science Building will serve as the centerpiece of NYU Langone’s transformation at the southernmost end of the main campus, and will provide a prominent new gateway to research and education on campus.
Like other major components of the campus transformation, the new Science Building will expand upon NYU Langone’s existing strengths—in this case, advanced biomedical research.
The building’s design will help strategically integrate research facilities and services so that investigators, students, faculty, and clinicians can work more efficiently and collaboratively. Its laboratory floors are designed to be open, efficient, flexible, and easily adaptable with cutting-edge, shared equipment to accommodate advances in research over time.
The expansive new Science Building will also enable the NYU School of Medicine to accommodate new recruits and projected growth in funded research.
It incorporates green design approaches and sustainable technologies in order to achieve a minimum of LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
