Summary of site plans and status

This is a 620,000 sq. ft. expansion of John Jay College. The building will be 14 stories and will cover the entire block on 11th Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets.

The programs and offices currently located in North Hall will be relocated to this new building. The building will also house classrooms, lecture halls, laboratories, campus and academic support services. The architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is the architect. Site demolition is planned for the Fall of 2006 and completion is scheduled for the Spring of 2009. The Haaren Building at 899 10th Avenue will be connected to the building at 555 West 58th Street.

The North Hall building, which is located across the street from the Haaren building, is owned by the New York State Dormitory Authority. John Jay College hopes to work with NYSDA to renovate the North Hall for future use.
