6. FIT New Academic Building

The Fashion Institute of Technology’s New Academic Building — its first constructed building in 50 years — will be located on the northern edge of the campus. The ten-story, 110,000-square-foot structure will house smart classrooms, a textile lab, administrative offices and the first-dedicated student life hall. It will also provide an internal passageway, spanning from 28th Street to 27th Street, that will connect to the adjacent Marvin Feldman Center.
