From the mid-19th to early-20th century, the historic village of Manhattanville was an energetic industrial neighborhood, bursting with breweries and factories. One hundred years later, the Manhattanville Factory District is once again becoming one of the most exciting places in New York. More and more, the District is becoming home to growing commercial businesses, not-for-profits, and the students and researchers of the adjacent Columbia University $7 billion 17-acre expansion and CUNY’s flagship City College.

The District starts with the natural urban beauty of the area with its unique intersection at 126th and 127th Streets and its striking brick and bluestone buildings. The Janus master-plan overlays an independent series of mid-block landscaped passageways and plazas beginning at West 125th Street and extending to 128th Street. This unique amenity will connect the main entrances of the 350,000 square foot Taystee Lab Building

with the 250,000 square foot Malt House, 50,000 square foot Sweets Building and 150,000 square foot Mink Building. These broad light-filled green spaces will feature beautiful landscaping and numerous places to gather, hold an outdoor meeting or just enjoy an Autumn day.

And at the center of it all lies the iconic Taystee Lab Building.
