Now final approval has been given and construction will start soon on Cornell University huge high tech campus on Roosevelt Island in the middle of the East River.
The island already is undergoing a major transformation with the new Franklin Roosevelt Memorial at its end.
Now Cornell will create over 2 million square feet with the new campus. Green space will abound and the university has embraced its location. Blooming trees will surround the project on twelve acres of land.
