$12M Bid Comes in For No. 6 School

Hospital outbids all other interested parties.

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.

There's a large parking lot there at this point, and sufficient space to make it even larger if it's needed. A medical practice/facility would do a lot for the businesses on Peninsula & Branch, and would provide more jobs for our community. Sounds like a win/win to me.

The property is huge. Plenty of room for parking lot once they tar over OUR baseball fields etc...And the school board does not give a fig about the residents.

I still feel that a vibrant JCC would contribute a lot more to our community. Sometimes purpose should win out over financial gain.

This Properties sale was poorly marketed. It should be Relisted Nationally.
