Known as the University Forum and Academic Conference Center, the building will host, as the name clearly mentions, academic conferences, symposia, and meetings. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop and Dattner Architects-designed building will also have a 430-seat auditorium.

Starting at the intersection of 125th Street and Broadway, the Manhattanville Campus spans 17 acres and includes several new buildings including the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, the Lenfest Center for the Arts, and a new Columbia Business School spread out over two buildings.

Excavation work on three-story conference center is currently underway, according to YIMBY, and the project is expected to be complete sometime in 2018.
