A Manhattan-based hospital has outbid all other interested parties by $3 million for the Number Six School property in Woodmere, the Nassau Herald reports.
Mount Sinai Hospital, along with Bronx-based developer Simone Development Companies, bid more than $12 million for the former elementary school, which was shuttered in 2009, a school official confirmed to the newspaper. The offer includes about $600,000 for building cleanup. The property could potentially be used as a multi-doctor practice.
If the bid is accepted by the board of education, it goes on a public referendum for a vote. However, the Town of Hempstead would have to grant the hospital and developer several variances if it were to build a practice there.
The next highest bids for Number Six School — at the corner of Peninsula Boulevard and Branch Boulevard — are from , for $9.5 million, and the , for $9.1 million. Another bid comes from an unnamed developer.
In 2007, the school district sold the Number One School in Lawrence for $29.1 million.
