New York University (NYU) | Center for Urban Science & Progress

In response to a challenge by the mayor to the world’s leading research universities to propose a new, transformative applied science and engineering campus for New York City, NYU engaged Public Works Partners to help them generate a compelling submission. In less than four months, we worked with a consortium of seven global research institutions, led by NYU, to conceptualize, organize and author a proposal to turn a vacant office building in Downtown Brooklyn into a public-private center of research on how cities can leverage technology to be more responsive, equitable and resilient. The result was over $60 million in support and in-kind funding to help underwrite the cost of converting the building and to stand up the new graduate program in urban informatics.
