Gates Hall Photo Update

December 30, 2013 // by Jason Henderson

Cornell’s future home for the CIS program, Gates Hall has made some exterior progress since late November, however, I’ve noticed that the facilities page now indicates (on the right-hand side) that early 2014 is the scheduled opening, rather than December 2013 as previously announced. The angular south-west entry way retaining walls have been poured, the stair structure and rebar is in place, and a couple more pre-fab concrete “feet” have been assembled on the western entryway. I imagine that the interior has been the major focus for finishing-up to get the school moved-in; Spring instruction starts January 22nd, although, judging by peaks from the outside, the goal may be during semester.
