Cronheim Mortgage arranged $5 million in financing for the Old Westbury Hebrew Congregation synagogue. The 15.7-acre property is home to a sanctuary, offices, classrooms and kosher catering business Ram Caterers, which can host events with up to 750 guests. The property’s main building was built in 1959, but expanded in 2007. The synagogue plans to build a new catering space that will be designed by architect Alfred Sutton, according to The Island Now. The space will have “an outdoorsy feel,” but be fully enclosed by sound deadening materials such as Thermopane glass and Uniflex fabric. Sutton presented his plans to the Old Westbury Board of Trustees. The village’s Planning and Architectural Review boards still need to review the proposal, Old Westbury Mayor Fred Carillo told the outlet. [The Island Now]
