NYU Expanding Into Former MTA Headquarters in Downtown Brooklyn

New York University's Downtown Brooklyn campus is expanding with a sprawling $500 million high-tech facility. 

The university will redevelop the former MTA headquarters at 370 Jay St. into a 500,000-square-foot space that will house additional science, technology and engineering programs, the school said.

NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) — a research and education center that studies data on how cities work — will take up the building’s top floors. Technology incubators and entrepreneurial outreach programs for the university's Tandon School of Engineering, located at MetroTech, will also use the new building.
