Pace University is building a new dormitory in lower Manhattan and, when it is completed in 2013, will no longer house students in the Educational Housing Services facility on Clark Street.
The Real Deal: Pace University has signed an agreement with SL Green Realty for a 24-floor residence hall to be constructed at 180 Broadway, at the corner of John Street, in Lower Manhattan…The new hall, designed by Karl Fischer, will replace the roughly 600-bed location the school currently leases in Brooklyn Heights, and is part of a university-wide construction effort.
We noted in April, 2007 that Pace was then planning to move some students from Clark Street to another new facility at 55 John Street, also in lower Manhattan. The dorm under construction is mentioned in the Real Deal article as adding to Pace’s existing residences in that area, including 55 John. Whether EHS will be able to fill the rooms at Clark Street vacated by Pace with students from other schools remains to be seen.
