Final Subdivision and Final Site Plan approval were granted by the New Hempstead Planning Board on November 5. Three weeks later, on November 24, we closed on the purchase from Yeshiva Darchei Noam in a $2.5 million transaction.

This 55,000 square foot project is to be built on the grounds of the former D’Agostino Garden Center on Grandview Avenue in New Hempstead.  The project design takes advantage of its location between two parcels of open space. The open space provides a natural buffer to neighboring houses while also emphasizing the LEEDS Silver-certifiable building techniques incorporated into the project.

The school will serve grades pre-K through 8, with a maximum enrollment of 440 children.

The property was purchased by a not-for-profit educational foundation and will be operated by Yeshiva of Greater Monsey.

Ira M. Emanuel, P.C., is the land use and transactional attorney for this project.
