NYU to Convert Loft Spaces for Genomic Facility

NEW YORK, Dec. 28 (GenomeWeb News) - New York University plans to convert several loft buildings for use as a life sciences and genomic research facility, according to a local community paper.


Along with negotiating new leases, Sharon Greenberger, NYU's new director of campus planning and real estate, will reuse the university's existing space to accommodate various needs, such as student housing, classrooms, and facilities, said the article in Downtown Express.


The university is expected to gut loft buildings along Waverly Place, near the campus, and renovate the entire space for the genomic research facility.


Greenberger's office did not return calls seeking confirmation.
