New York University is planning a $500 million expansion of high-tech campuses in Brooklyn, school President Andrew Hamilton said.
The investment the university will make over the next decade builds on its existing NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Downtown Brooklyn, which has 5,212 students enrolled in white-hot fields such as computer coding and video game design.
The facility will add 500,000 square feet of university space by developing the former transit headquarters on Jay St. When it opens in summer 2017, it will nearly double the area’s 600,000 square feet of NYU space.
