Pace University campus overhaul (Feb, 2017)

The university unveiled a three-phase expansion plan for its lower Manhattan campus. Responding to increasing enrollment, the $190 million plan will reinvigorate academic and common areas at the school’s two main academic buildings.

The goal was to create a master plan that matches the clarity and aspirations of Opportunitas: Embracing the future Pace’s plan to respond to the needs of today’s learners, fosters an increased sense of community, and encourages engagement. And to focus on student-centric solutions to activate, reveal and connect spaces and places at Pace.

Phase One channels $45 million into reviving more than 55,000 square feet of space at One Pace Plaza and 41 Park Row, right near City Hall. Improvements will target the courtyard entrance, first, and then lower levels, adding a welcome center, new student center, learning commons, and quiet study areas.

Construction on Phase One is expected to wrap in fall 2018.
