New NYU-Poly Space in Brooklyn Set for Ribbon-Cutting

January 17, 2012


City and Brooklyn Officials Join NYU Leadership to Inaugurate 120,000 sq ft Expansion Space in MetroTech


A ribbon-cutting to officially open a major expansion for NYU-Poly: 120,000 sq ft in MetroTech for the Computer Science and Engineering Department, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, computational labs, classrooms, faculty offices, and administrative space.

The expansion is part of both NYU’s city-wide approach to development of new academic space under its NYU 2031 plan – fully half of which will be outside Greenwich Village – and NYU-Poly’s i2e campus transformation.
