The American Museum of Natural History held a ground breaking ceremony for the construction of the Richard Gilder Center on Wednesday. The ceremony was attended by Mayor de Blasio, Council Member Helen Rosenthal, AMNH President Ellen Futter and many others.
The project will cost $383 million and is expected to be complete at some point in 2020.
The Gilder Center will be a 190,000 square foot, five story addition. The project also includes about 40,000 square feet of renovations to existing spaces and alterations to the approximately 75,000-square-foot adjacent area of Theodore Roosevelt Park.
