Nearly 11 years after its predecessor was damaged beyond repair by the collapse of 7 World Trade Center, the Borough of Manhattan Community College’s new Fiterman Hall opened its doors to students on Mon., Aug. 27.

The 14-story building, which features a modern design and advanced educational technology, increases B.M.C.C.’s classroom capacity by about a third, according to the college’s website. The new space will be vital to health of the college, given that since the 9/11 attacks, many students had been forced to attend classes in trailers near the B.M.C.C. headquarters on Chambers Street.

Fiterman Hall will also include a fine art gallery and a public café, both of which are currently under construction.

“People will be able to see life within this building,” said B.M.C.C. President Antonio Perez, in a statement on the college’s website. “They will be able to see students taking advantage of this opportunity. So this is, in my perspective, a jewel that will shine forever in downtown Manhattan.”
