Spanning more than a century, New York University’s growth around Washington Square has followed a variety of strategies: repurposing of existing industrial buildings, incremental contextually-designed new structures, and large-scale clearance and redevelopment through urban renewal—the superblocks of which are now viewed as sites for further development.
