☞ ARCHITECTURE: A New Manhattanville Campus
LINK. Until now, all the architectural plans have been kept from the public and it appears that the glass buildings will level off at the same height as the original Sheffield Dairy stable building that it displaced (center photo). We remember reading something about Columbia agreeing to level off new building heights to match those of the nearby apartment buildings on the 125th Street south side of the campus but the rendering actually has some severely tall towers to the far left (click on image to enlarge). It's just a placeholder for the final designs but is it a sign of things to come?
