  1. That’s 401 West 218th Street.

  2. This doesn’t really make sense. The lot was listed for sale since June 2019 (post-rezoning ) for $22.5M. It can support a massive amount of development, including 7.2 FAR residential. Building an 8 story educational building with no residential isn’t logical. The owner in Acris is also still the longtime owner (A-1 All German Auto’s proprieter), not the developer named here. Something is awry.

  3. Wait, now this makes sense. This is probably the tech center promised as part of the Inwood rezoning:

    66. Create an Inwood Innovation Hub focused on STEM Talent Solutions
    The 4095 Ninth Avenue RFP will include a request for the development of a new Inwood

    talent development support and resources to create access to economic and advancement
    opportunities for local and neighboring communities. The City will work with the local Council
    office throughout the RFP process, and will specify that the facility operator/project developer
    provide the following:
