The Bridge at Cornell Tech, designed by WEISS/MANFREDI and developed by Forest City Ratner Companies, has been topped off after starting construction in the summer of 2015. The building, which begins the first phase of the two billion dollar Roosevelt Island tech campus, will be a first-of-its-kind building that will house companies, researchers, and entrepreneurs who aim to drive the economic growth of New York through the commercialization of new products. The Bridge is scheduled to open to the public in the summer of 2017, along with two other CornellTech projects. The first of those two projects is the Bloomberg Center designed by Thom Mayne of Morphosis Architects, which adapts open plan office spaces and brings them into the educational sector with an open floor plan and extensive collaborative work spaces. This building aspires to be among the largest net-zero energy buildings in the country, since all of its power will be generated on the Cornell Tech campus.
