NEW YORK, NY – Shawmut completed the renovation and expansion of the Peter J. Tobin College of Business on the Queens Campus of St. John’s University. This completion marks the largest project for Shawmut’s Institutional group to date in the New York region.
Shawmut renovated the 70,000 square-foot, four-story space to serve as the new home of the university’s Tobin College of Business. The team updated the space by creating an expanded lobby area, a high-tech financial lab, a central staircase, a new outdoor patio area with a sloped glass entry, and modified the front façade to install a new curtainwall system. The space also includes new classrooms, a large multi-purpose space, faculty offices, student study areas, collaboration areas, a career service center, and a start-up incubator lab.
“Collaborating with St. John’s University to bring their vision of a flexible learning environment to life was an exciting task for our team,” said Tony Miliote, Shawmut vice president. “It was a rewarding experience to upgrade a space at the university that will foster connections and collaboration within the community.”
Shawmut worked with Cannon Design on this renovation, which represents the latest in Shawmut’s New York academic work, including Columbia University, Riverdale Country School, and The Buckley School.
