The French-American School of New York needs approval from White Plains for its $60 million plan to build on the site of the former 129-acre Ridgeway Country Club. The prep school purchased the land for $8.5 million in 2011. Opponents of the school, including former Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera, who is building a home nearby, have concerns about the safety of the street. Meanwhile, hedge-fund billionaire George Soros’ daughter, Andrea Colombe, as a former chair of the school’s board, supports the development, the New York Post reported. The school’s lawyer, Michael Zarin, is confident that plans will be approved come fall. [NYP]
