Work has been progressing on Pliskin Architecture’s renovation of the entrances to two residential towers on the Columbia University Medical Center campus in Washington Heights. The work includes new glass entrances and large metal canopies to create a seamless transition from the education campus to the student and faculty apartments that overlook the Hudson River and The George Washington Bridge.
The residential towers are set within two courtyards designed by SCAPE Landscape Architecture and are adjacent to the new Medical and Graduate Education Building by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro and Gensler.
Current work on site includes structural concrete and steel programs, which are nearing completion, and recently saw the start of electrical work and ceiling framing.
Work is scheduled to complete by June of 2016 and in advance of the 2016/2017 academic year.
