Forest Hills Tower at 118-35 Queens Blvd. will be the new home of Plaza College in September 2014.

Plaza, a private college founded in 1916 and offering market-relevant associate and baccalaureate degrees through its schools of Allied Health and Business & Technology, will utilize the tower’s “building within a building” option and have a dedicated entrance on Queens Boulevard.

“We are dedicated to providing our student population with the best possible academic experience and are so excited to kick off our 100 year anniversary celebration with a beautiful new campus,” said Chad Callahan, Plaza’s director of strategic initiatives.

Forest Hills Tower is situated on the corner of Queens Boulevard and Union Turnpike — a central location very accessible via multiple highways and mass transit — and will provide a more traditional campus experience. The new campus will feature additional medical labs, and expanded Student Commons, a dedicated outdoor pavilion, and much more.

Plaza’s existing campus in Jackson Heights will become an annex.

Plaza promised that its expansion to the new main campus will be a seamless transition for students, staff and faculty.
