Cornell University plans to rent a temporary Manhattan space this fall, says a spokesman for CornellNYC Tech. “We have not announced exactly where yet; stay tuned for that,” he says.

Cornell recently shortlisted six architects, chosen out of 43, to design the Roosevelt Island core academic building, which is set to open by 2017. The building will be part of CornellNYC Tech, the planned $2-billion-plus, state-of-the-art tech campus that Cornell will build in partnership with Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. Cornell says it plans to select the winner and sign a contract next month.
