Project outcome

Lendlease provided construction management services for Phase I of Columbia University's Manhattanville in West Harlem Development. The nine-story, 457,000 square foot Jerome L. Greene Science Center (Center), home to the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, reinforces and expands Columbia's role as an international leader in neuroscience education and research. The structure, the first building to rise on the 17-acre Manhattanville site, is the largest research building that Columbia has ever built and the biggest academic science building in New York City.

The Jerome L. Greene Science Center is one of the three buildings that define the southeastern quadrant of the new 17-acre Manhattanville campus. Located immediately west of Broadway between 129th and 130th Streets, the glass enclosed building consists of laboratories for scientists to explore the causal relationship between gene function, brain wiring, and behavior.

In keeping with Columbia's goal of creating an urban campus that connects with its surrounding neighborhood, the building is open to the public at ground level, where it houses a health screening facility and neuroscience education center for the West Harlem community, as well as retail spaces, cafes and restaurants.
