CWE Will House Classes For Fall In Existing Location

NEW YORK, May 18, 2006 The City College Center for Worker Education (CWE) announced today that it has a new move date of January 2007.

“Our move to 25 Broadway will be delayed until the end of the Fall ’06 semester,” stated Dean Daniel E. Lemons. “This development comes as a relief at this point, given the slippage in the building schedule, and the pressure that a move before or during the fall term would put on us.  It is perhaps also fortuitous given the subway disruptions below Chambers St. on the 1 and 4/5 lines that will go into the fall. They should be cleared up by spring.”

Originally slated to move August 25, CWE will now stay at its current location, 99 Hudson Street, through the end of the year. “The landlord at 99 Hudson will renew our lease through January,” said Lemons.

Summer and fall classes will resume at the existing location in Tribeca.  CWE's move to the financial district, 25 Broadway, is expected to take place while students are on winter break.

The school’s new home will be on the seventh floor of the historic Cunard Building, a New York Landmark whose other tenants include Telehouse, Managed Health, Inc., and Healthfirst Inc.  The 44,000 square feet of leased space will include 15 classrooms to accommodate 750 bachelor’s degree students, a state-of-the-art auditorium with 150 seat capacity, workshop classrooms, smart seminar rooms, an improved full-size computer lab, a student lounge, public information display, and a student study area/library resource room.

The new location will be near 15 subways lines as well as other mass transit lines.

Students are encouraged to check the CWE website, for updates.
