With construction nearing completion ahead of its September opening date, the first building at the new Cornell Tech campus on New York City’s Roosevelt Island has been dubbed “one of the most environmentally-friendly buildings in the world” by the university, as they revealed their aspirations for the building to reach Net Zero and LEED Platinum status.

Designed by Morphosis, The Bloomberg Center (named for Emma and Georgina Bloomberg, daughters of former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg) will employ a range of strategies including solar power; geothermal ground source heat pumps; a dynamic energy-efficient facade which balances transparency and opaqueness to maximize building insulation; and an array of smart building technologies that monitor lighting and plug load use, among other metrics.

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.
