University Building Projects Continue
Liberty Terrace, housed in two five-story apartment-style residences at the east end of the uptown campus, is set to open in the fall. Meeting spaces, a fitness center, lounge areas and shared laundry facilities are among the amenities planned for the buildings, which will accommodate 500 students. The project is heated and cooled with a ground-source heat-pump system.
When completed in Fall 2013, UAlbany’s new School of Business – located near Grand Entry Plaza – will house 28 classrooms, 10 group-study rooms, a trading room and five conference rooms.
The latest College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering expansion will add nearly 500,000 square feet of state-of-the-art infrastructure; 50,000 square feet of cutting-edge cleanrooms; and more than 1,000 scientists, researchers and engineers from CNSE and its global corporate partners. Part of the NanoFab Xtension will headquarter and house the world’s first Global 450mm Consortium, a $4.8 billion, first-of-its-kind collaboration comprised of five leading international companies – IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, TSMC and Samsung – working to create the next generation of computer chip technology. Completion is expected at year’s end.
