NYU eyes ground zero

New York University, which is proposing a sweeping expansion plan, is now considering ground zero in Lower Manhattan, according to a report in the New York Times.

In a letter to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, NYU requested discussion about what role the university could have in the redevelopment of the former World Trade Center site, according to The Times.

The university’s plans to add six million square feet of new classrooms, dorms and office over the next 20 years, including a significant expansion in the Village, have drawn opposition. Expanding at ground zero would not replace the plans for the Village as the university would need that as well to accommodate faculty housing needs, according to published reports.
