The Graduate Roosevelt Island, set to debut summer 2020, will be the island’s first ever hotel as well as Graduate’s first New York City property.

It came about as part of a Cornell University science and tech development on Roosevelt Island, with the institution enlisting Graduate to develop a property adjacent to its new campus.

The 18-story building will give skyline views of Manhattan, as well as offering an indoor-outdoor rooftop bar and full-service restaurant.

The 224-room Roosevelt Island hotel will mark Graduate Hotels’ 27th location, with Graduate Cincinnati and Graduate Knoxville also on the way.

Graduate says that Roosevelt Island’s farmer’s market, public parks, historical sites and views to Manhattan make it an untapped market for hoteliers.
