Columbia Business School Manhattanville Project

Louis Bacon and The Moore Charitable Foundation announce their support of the new Columbia Business School facilities, which are a part of the University’s expansion into Manhattanville, just north of the Morningside Campus.

“I am proud to support Columbia Business School as it continues to grow alongside the changing landscape of business today,” said Mr. Bacon. “This new home in Manhattanville will enhance the School’s ability to foster transformative ideas and prepare future generations of business leaders to impact the world. I further applaud the environmentally responsible approach taken in the design and construction of these facilities, as it shows that stewardship and business can work hand in hand.”

The new buildings, designed by renowned New York architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro, in collaboration with FXFOWLE, will encompass more than 450,000 square feet and will offer multifunctional spaces that foster a sense of community — spaces where students, faculty members, alumni, and practitioners can gather to exchange ideas.
