Hunter College parcel gets several bids

June 10, 2008 08:57AM

Hunter College’s Brookdale campus has reportedly gotten first-round bids of $200 million-plus from Edward Minskoff, LCOR, Extell and New York University. CUNY wants to sell or lease the 4.2-acre complex bounded by First Avenue and the FDR Drive and East 25th and 26th streets. Up to 1 million square feet of new residential or education facilities could be built on the property, now taken up by medical school classrooms, dormitories and a tennis court. The winning bidder must build a new high school to replace the city’s Julia Richman Education Complex at 317 East 67th Street. In a contentious move, CUNY plans to tear down the school and build a new science complex.
