Construction on the Superblocks

The two NYU-owned superblocks are just south of Washington Square in an area bounded by W 3rd Street, LaGuardia Place, Houston Street, and Mercer Street. They contain NYU's large faculty housing complexes -- Washington Square Village and Silver Towers -- as well as the Coles Sport and Recreation Center and other buildings.

Because the superblocks encompass quite a large area, and because NYU will be redeveloping  the Coles site in the coming years, a number of maintenance operations, public space beautification projects, and infrastructural improvements will be necessary on their grounds and facilities.
