New York City Master Plan

Project Updates

As Pace begins construction to renovate the New York City campus and create exciting new spaces for our community, the Master Plan team, including Security and Facilities personnel will work hard to minimize disruption and maintain normal campus operations. We are working closely with Sciame Construction, our construction management firm, to coordinate the project and campus logistics.

In addition, there are other important projects taking place on campus this summer related to ongoing campus maintenance and building improvement in student services.

Please check here frequently for project updates.
