Columbia University's Manhattanville campus has had a lot of excavation work done over the past couple of years but not much has been going up until now. Walking by the first lot just north of 125th Street and Broadway, we noticed that steel pilasters were finally being placed into the ground. There appears to still be a lot of work to be done but at least one of the planned towers will finally start taking shape. With that said, this still may be just part of the foundation work which has an finish date targeted for next fall so it is unclear if any more height will be added on passed this point: LINK.
