Developing Lower Manhattan: Fiterman Hall

In just a few weeks the Borough of Manhattan Community College launches the 2012-2013 academic year with the opening of the new, 14-story Fiterman Hall at 30 West Broadway between Barclay Street and Park Place.

The original Fiterman Hall was irreparably damaged when 7 World Trade fell against it in the 9/11 attacks. The new building — designed by the architectural firm of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and built by Hunter Roberts Construction Group — will house a world-class, fine arts gallery and public café, as well as approximately 80 Smart Classrooms and computer labs, offices, library spaces, music ensemble rooms and a rooftop conference center.
