Summary of site plans and status

The Lander College for Women of Touro College, includes a 20-story tower, the first two floors of which include a gym, library, cafeteria, classrooms and offices. The remaining 15 floors feature 101 residential units, comprised of 59 one-bedroom, 24 two-bedroom, and a mix of other size units. These 101 residential units are luxury condominiums, called Hudson Condominiums.

Community Board 7 opposed the change in zoning that resulted in the 20-story Hudson. At that time, the developer emphasized the need for Touro to expand the college. The Board of Standards and Appeals approved the project with minor modifications.

The school facilities were completed by August 2006, and the apartments by September 2006.

Touro College appeared before the New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYCIDA) on 11/9/06 to discuss re-financing of all college buildings, which includes the site at 225 West 60 Street. According to publicly available information, financing for the site includes: “the financing and/or refinancing of the construction, renovation and equipping of an approximately 45,000 square foot commercial condominium unit owned by the College in an approximately 155,000 square foot building located on an approximately 12,600 square foot parcel of land at 225-227 West 60 Street, New York, New York, for use by the Lander College for Women in the approximate amount of $8,000,000.”

According to a September 2006 Residential Update from “The Real Deal” :

“The on-site sales center and two model apartments were unveiled early last month for the 80-unit condominium. Occupancy is slated for early 2007, with one- to three-bedrooms…The Developers Group and Halstead Property Development Marketing are the exclusive marketing and sales agents.
