In the wake of the update late Friday that Stanford University had pulled its bid to build an applied science technology campus in NY,  the news leaked this morning that later today in a press conference, the Bloomberg administration will officially announce Cornell University as the winning school.  As part of the winning bid Cornell, which is teaming with Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, will likely build its proposed campus on Roosevelt Island, which according to BloombergBusinessweek, will contain “two million square feet for almost 2,000 students.”

The central NY ivy league unversity also announce on Friday that the school received an anonymous $350 million gift  to support its bid.
