Following completion of a comprehensive Master Plan for the 74-acre campus, the Academic Village is the first phase of new building construction. Located prominently near the main entrance to the Kingsborough Community College campus, the Academic Village. The master planning effort was initiated in the mid-1990s, and the new facility, which replaced existing row houses, was integrated with neighboring buildings. IBI Group – Gruzen Samton created visual and functional links between the proposed building and its surrounding structures. The building accommodates a wide variety of community programs such as continuing education for older adults, distance learning, day care, curriculum for teenagers, and administrative activities for the local community board.
