SUNY Polytechnic Institute is planning a 504-bed residence, new student center and a 650-space parking facility near its Albany headquarters.
SUNY Poly’s Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering recently split from the University at Albany and currently has no dorms of its own. In March, the college solicited dorm proposals from developers but did not say where the buildings would be located.
Under the plan, 11 homes would have to be demolished to make room for the new facilities.
Approvals for the new facilities are pending before local government officials.
The first phase of the project, which is being developed by Fuller Road Management, SUNY Poly’s real estate arm, calls for the first parking spaces to be in place by December of this year and the first dorm rooms opening in September 2016. The dorm building would also include 2,000 sq ft for campus security.
The second phase of construction would add a campus center and 250 beds of additional housing at that would open by September 2017.
In the third and final phase, an additional 150 beds would be added by September 2018.
The architect for the project is EYP, whose headquarters are at the Nano College.
