Columbia University | Manhattanville Campus

Columbia University’s new Manhattanville campus is starting to come to life with the first three buildings unveiled in the spring of 2019. The massive 17-acre campus extension will unfold over decades, featuring innovative building designs, tree-lined streets, expansive plazas, and plenty of green space.

During the first phase of construction, Classic Stone worked closely with James Corner Field Operations, providing samples and recommendations for the paving stones. Perfect for high-traffic areas, granite cobbles were selected and used for pedestrian walkways and throughout the public plaza situated between the three buildings.

The overall landscape scheme in phase one will be continued throughout the development, maintaining a cohesive feel and creating a recognizable perimeter for the wall-less campus.

The next phase of the project will include a new home for Columbia’s Business School and a beautifully landscaped one-acre plaza. Construction is ongoing with additional stone contracts expected to be awarded in the coming months.

The new campus is the nation’s first university campus plan designated Stage 1 LEED Platinum.
