Hunter Announces Temporary Housing for Brookdale Residents

HUNTER COLLEGE–Hunter’s administration unveiled new plans to renovate the North Building in order to provide temporary workspace and housing relief for Brookdale occupants during a briefing on Nov. 1.

In 2022, Governor Kathy Hochul and Mayor Eric Adams announced plans to demolish Hunter’s Brookdale campus to make space for a new CUNY and Department Of Education hub focused on the life sciences and healthcare. Called the Science Park and Research Campus, the project is expected to generate $42 billion of economic growth, create 15,000 job opportunities and provide renovated facilities for the health sciences.
