Columbia University
School of Nursing Building
New York, NY

97,500 SF • 9,060 SQ M

Davis Brody Bond recently completed a conceptual design proposal for a new Columbia University School of Nursing Building at Audubon Avenue and 168th street in Manhattan. The 97,500 sf building will provide the school with an attractive new home enabling it to become a global leader in the training of a new generation of health professionals. To respond to a growing role within the healthcare system for nurses and nurse practitioners, this modern and well-equipped facility will feature an iconic and subdividable multipurpose room, state of the art health simulation laboratories and innovative new homes for faculty research centres in addition to a central gathering and circulation space.

As the fifth major project designed by DBB as part of the Audubon Research Park, this project will establish a gateway between the campus and community and be fully integrated with the 168th street medical and educational campus. Public programs of the new building will be showcased along 168th street and become the easternmost anchor to the 168th street campus axis. The new School of Nursing building will create a major transformation of the physical identity and presence of Nursing on the CUMC Campus.
