Shaping the Face of Lower Manhattan
Over the past year, Pace has developed a number of projects to improve the aesthetics of its existing buildings, increase academic and cultural opportunities and change the overall campus experience for both our students and the surrounding communities.
Pace secured a new location for its Performing Arts Department and programs at 140 William Street. Opening in Fall 2012, the building is being renovated to include classrooms, offices, and a dance studio, plus a 100-seat theater on the first floor that will be used for performances, lecture series, and other events open to the public.
Pace will open a new residential hall at Broadway and John Street in Fall 2013, across from the new Fulton Street Transit Center. This will increase the number of students utilizing Pace housing in Lower Manhattan from 1,200 to 1,800.
Pace plans to convert the Plaza into a vibrant destination, so that the spot is a go-to location for performing arts programming and exhibits, community focused events, and outdoor activities.
