Columbia University Expansion with TEI Elevators
A pair of midrise buildings at Columbia University’s Manhattanville campus is headed toward completion by the end of the year, New York YIMBY reports. Planned by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and designed by Diller Scofido + Renfro with FXCollaborative, the structures — the Henry R. Kravis Building and the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Business Innovation — will be served by a vertical-transportation system from TEI Group. The company told ELEVATOR WORLD the system for the project consists of 17 elevators, including 13 overhead gearless, one overhead geared traction and two holeless hydraulic units. The site is bound by West 130th Street to the south, West 131st Street to the north, Broadway to the east and Riverside Drive Highway to the west.
