Alumni House Construction Update
Check this page frequently for updates about the renovation of City College's vacant Hamilton Heights townhouse.
The City College of New York is set to begin renovations this spring for Alumni House, a
limestone townhouse it owns in Harlem's Hamilton Heights Historic
District, in the coming months. The building, located at the corner of Convent Avenue and W. 141st Street, will become part of the Colin Powell
School for Civic and Global Leadership, established in May 2013.
"Alumni House has been vacant since it was damaged by fire in the late 1970s, but has the potential to be a gorgeous part of an historic Harlem block," said Dr. Vince Boudreau, dean of the Colin Powell School. "We embrace the opportunity to rehabilitate this beautiful structure and put it back into use. The School will use the restored building for offices and activities involving public events programming and civic engagement. The space will provide a venue for workshops, leadership training and professional development for students, and interactions between campus and community leaders."
