Smile NEW YORK | 3009 Broadway | FT | 12 FLOORS

Project: 3009 Broadway

Barnard is planning to knock down Lehman Hall, which holds its library and faculty offices, and replace it with a new five-story building holding a library and classrooms, attached to a 12-story tower holding offices and a science center.

The college expects to demolish Lehman starting in December, and have the new building open by August 2018. The Columbia Spectator has covered the issue closely, with a more comprehensive story here.

Neighbors have been watching the plans closely, as it could affect their views and light on Claremont Avenue in particular — Frank Wolf, Dean Emeritus of Columbia’s School of Continuing Education says the school met with residents last June, but has not been nearly as forthcoming as they’d like. “They said they want to involve neighbors in the process but they mean exactly the opposite,” he wrote to us last month.
