Developers PEBB Capital and TriArch Real Estate Group acquired the lot and an existing five-story dormitory in February 2018 for $20.3 million from The Jewish Theological Seminary. According to reports, the institution sold the property along with 262,000 square feet of unused air rights over the school’s campus to finance modernization of their Morningside Heights campus. The former dormitory has since been demolished.

Completion of the new property is expected by May 2020.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: I brave to boast about this design, it’s beautiful altogether to take evidence on structure.

  2. the rendering suggests it’s flush with the streetwall — let’s see if that’s reality.

  3. In a neighborhood and city desperate for affordable housing, another new construction is targeted exclusively to students with wealthy parents.
