New York City Council okays plans for Cornell's huge net-zero tech campus

Cornell University's proposal to build a two million sf tech campus on Roosevelt Island has been approved by the New York City Council. The campus will use solar and geothermal power as energy sources to go beyond what is needed for net-zero energy. Construction will begin in 2014.The university agreed to transport construction equipment via barge to limit traffic on the island's main road and monitor air quality throughout the project to alleviate concerns of island residents.
