After five years of planning and more than two years of construction, NYU College of Dentistry is happy to announce that the new NYU inter-professional building at 433 First Avenue is officially open.

The 11-story, 170,000 square-foot building is being utilized by dental and nursing students in classrooms, lecture halls, and a state-of-the-art Student Learning Commons. The new building also provides offices, research labs, and conference rooms for faculty and staff from the College of Dentistry, College of Nursing, and the NYU Polytechnic Bioengineering Institute. The College of Dentistry occupies 32 percent of the building, the College of Nursing occupies approximately 50 percent, and the Bioengineering Institute occupies 18 percent.

433 First Avenue – which was designed by Kohn Pederson Fox and EYP Architecture and Engineering – is located in the heart of the NYU health sciences corridor in Manhattan. The facility was designed to stimulate interaction among dental, nursing, and bioengineering students, and to foster a new model of education, healthcare delivery, and scientific partnership among academic disciplines.

The shared floors are the main lobby, which includes the College of Dentistry’s student services suite and a café, the third floor, which houses the 10,000 square-foot Student Learning Commons, the seventh floor, which is shared by dentistry and nursing faculty and staff, and the eleventh floor, which features the Executive Conference Center.

"This is a fantastic new building to advance healthcare and biomedical science," said Dr. Robert Berne, NYU’s Executive Vice President for Health. "By bringing these three health leaders under one roof, 433 First Avenue becomes not just an impressive addition to the NYU and New York City landscape, but a shining example of that commitment. In classrooms, laboratories, offices, and a technology – rich learning commons, students and colleagues from across disciplines will come together to teach, to learn, and to explore exciting opportunities," he continued.

"Having a state-of-the-art, inter-professional building along the NYU health sciences corridor on First Avenue will create many opportunities for collaboration that will enhance our teaching, research and service activities," said Dean Bertolami.

The building was officially dedicated on March 16, 2015.
