NEW YORK CITY-Amid the economic downturn, educational, healthcare and cultural institutions have outspent private sector office and multifamily owners on new construction starts across the city, the New York Building Congress says in a report released Monday. Richard T. Anderson, Building Congress president, notes in the report that demand for public and private institutions’ services is less dependent on the overall economy than the office and residential sectors, and he expects the healthy spending patterns to continue.

“The signs of continued investment abound,” Anderson says in the report. “Columbia, NYU and Fordham have unveiled detailed campus expansion plans that will stretch for years. CUNY has more than $1 billion in projects in varying stages of development. The Whitney Museum is moving forward with construction of a new museum building near the High Line. In addition, the New York City Department of Education has commitments for $9 billion over the next four years to modernize its teaching facilities while adding 30,000 new seats in 56 buildings across all five boroughs.”
