A view of the open space between the three Silver Towers designed by I. M. Pei on a superblock where New York University plans to concentrate much of its planned growth over the next two decades. The open space is planned to remain as it is, but the university plans to erect a one-million square foot mixed-use academic center on the site of the one story building behind the towers.
