The Manhattanville Factory District is a master-planned neighborhood of more than one million square feet in West Harlem, developed by Janus from underutilized industrial buildings and vacant land from West 125th to West 128th Streets. The District creates a collaborative corridor anchored by Columbia University, Columbia Medical Center, City College and the New York Structural Biology Center, and brings much needed publicly accessible open space to this re-imagined industrial neighborhood.
Moderated by Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic Paul Goldberger, the event will feature speakers Elsia Vasquez, Founder and Executive Director of P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. Harlem; Larry English, Chairman of AirRail and former Community Board 9 Chair; Patrice Derrington, Director of the Center for Urban Real Estate and Director of the M.S. in Real Estate Development Program at Columbia University; Scott Metzner and Jerry Salama, Principals of Janus; Stella Betts and David Leven, Principals of LevenBetts, the architecture firm for MFD’s Taystee Lab Building; Thomas Gluck, Principal of GLUCK+, the architecture firm for MFD’s Malt House; and Theodore Hoerr, Principal of Terrain Work, the landscape architect for the District's publicly accessible open space.
