LaGuardia Place Retail Space Renovation
NYU will renovate three vacant storefronts in the LaGuardia Place retail strip. These spaces will become the LaGuardia Studio, a 3-D printing facility, and the LaGuardia Co-op, a student technology center.
Silver Towers, Mercer-Houston Dog Run Relocation
NYU will relocate the existing dog run managed by the Mercer-Houston Dog Run Association (MHDRA) to an area of comparable size west of the Coles Redevelopment Project site on the Silver Towers block (the current location of Rocketship Park along the northern side of Houston Street, just west of Coles). The existing dog run is expected to remain open until the new space is operational.
