Anonymous Donor Gives $130 Million to Institute for Two New Buildings

Today's New York Times informs us that an anonymous donor has given Rensselaer $130 million for a new biotechnology research center and a performing arts center.

The NYT article is here.

A set of press releases and other related documents can be viewed at RPI's web site.

Private sources tell me that the biotech center will be placed in the parking lot between the DCC, CII, and Old School 14 (Academy Hall). It is possible that the roadway into campus will be moved to accomodate this. The new PAC is expected to be built on the side of the hill to the west of the Folsom Library.
