Exterior work is nearing completion the nearly 100,000-square-foot expansion of the Otis College of Art and Design's primary Westchester campus.

The main component of the project - a five-story structure along the western perimeter of the campus - consists of separate residential and academic wings linked together by a 300-seat auditorium.  When completed, the building will offer housing for up to 234 students, a library, academic space, a student union and a resource center.

Outside of the new building, a landscaped central quad is poised to become a central gathering space for the college.

The project was jointly designed by Ehrlich Architects and Frederick Fisher and Partners.

Studio Gang-Designed Tower Proposed in Chinatown

The 26-story building would rise at 643 N. Spring Street.

A curving mixed-use tower designed by Studio Gang is set to rise in Chinatown.

The project, first reported by Curbed, calls for replacing a series of small commercial at 643 N. Spring Street with a 26-story, 270-foot-tall building that would feature 300 apartments, 149 hotel rooms, and public open space.
