Forest City Ratner Companies is developing the first office building of the Cornell Tech Campus on Roosevelt Island. This building, called The Bridge, represents the first opportunity for private industry – from established tech companies to small start-ups – to co-locate and partner with the faculty, students and staff at Cornell Tech to advance and commercialize new technologies. The Bridge at Cornell Tech will revolutionize the relationship between academia and industry – creating an environment to co-create and to collaborate in order to invent solutions to the real world challenges of the future. It will be a place where industry will have access to a talent pool that represents the best of the best in technological and entrepreneurial minds, and where industry will have the opportunity to partner with faculty on the cutting edge of applied research. The building features approximately 242,000 rentable square feet.
