Fashion Institute of Technology New Academic Building

FIT's New Academic Building project will transform the college’s identity. The 10-story, approximately $145 million LEED Gold building will contain 110,000-square-feet of much-needed additional space, including smart classrooms, studios, student assembly space, and administrative offices.

Project Overview

The new building will be located directly behind and will connect to the Feldman Center, in a 75-foot setback from the West 28th Street property line. The project’s design reflects FIT’s embrace of openness, exploration and the robust exchange of ideas and will enliven West 28th Street, bringing light and animation to the street level.  Planning for the New Academic building began in 2002 with an award-winning proposal from SHoP Architects. The project is strongly supported by the students and faculty of FIT, and received unanimous approval from Manhattan Community Board Five.
