Cornell proposes NYC campus with Technion
American, Israeli academic institutions join forces in proposal to open full-scale tech campus in 2012
Cornell University is joining with the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in a proposal to build a New York City tech campus.


More than two dozen bidders, including Stanford University and Columbia University, are competing for the chance to create a city campus for high-tech study.


Mayor Michael Bloomberg has offered land at Roosevelt Island, Governors Island, or the Brooklyn Navy Yard for the project.


Cornell and Technion propose opening a full-scale city campus in 2012, initially in either leased space or at existing Cornell facilities.


The NYC Tech Campus eventually would grow to more than 2 million square feet (200,000 square meters) on Roosevelt Island.


Bidders must submit their proposals by October 28. The winning bid could be announced before the end of the year.
