2012 Hines Competition Finalist – Columbia University


“The Post”

Team 1248
Columbia University

By maintaining the existing USPS office building and converting it into a center for artists, workshops, and incubator office space, “The Post” creates a cultural center within the site to compliment the adjacent cultural district.   It also introduces roof-top entertainment such as cinemas and eateries to capitalize on the site’s views of downtown and beyond.  Residential development maintains a human scale while providing housing for over 2500 people at all income levels. A portion of the USPS distribution facility is also retained, and will be renovated to house a small-vendor produce market
