Pace U breaks ground for major college growth project

Ceremonial groundbreaking for what will be the largest ongoing
construction project entirely within Westchester County

PLEASANTVILLE – Officials at Pace University broke ground Wednesday on a $110 million facilities expansion project that will eventually see a consolidation of its Briarcliff campus.

College Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer William McGrath said this first phase will take three years to complete.

“We are going to be building new residence halls, a new campus green, we are going to be making significant upgrades to our athletic fields, we are going to be expanding our campus center and we are going transform the Pleasantville campus into a truly modern, residential campus,” McGrath said.

Future plans on the 100-acre campus call for construction of another dormitory to replace an older one, which will be converted to offices. A new well care center and another academic building are also in long-term plans.

The college hopes to sell the 37-acre Briarcliff campus by 2016.
