Construction Update from Columbia University: 3595 Broadway

Columbia University is constructing a new 12-story building at 3595 Broadway on the southwest corner of Broadway and 148th Street. The Meeting with God Church, currently located at 3581 Broadway at 147th Street, will be moving into the ground level space of this new building.

The remaining areas of the new building will include affordable housing units for some residents currently living in the area of Manhattanville in West Harlem where the  university is building a new campus. The project is in the pre-construction phase and is expected to be completed by the fall of 2014.

The community should expect the following in the coming weeks:

  • Modifying of the construction fence
  • Installing scaffolding
  • Demolition
