 Project Overview

The Fashion Institute of Technology’s (FIT) New Academic Building project will transform the college’s identity. The 10-story, approximately $139,000,000 LEED Gold building will contain 110,000-square-feet of much-needed additional smart classrooms, studios, student  assembly space, and administrative offices.

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. The project is strongly supported by the students and faculty of FIT, and received unanimous approval from Manhattan Community Board Five.
