I predict Columbia and NYU to take over more buildings in NYC. The cost of education at for-profit colleges keep going up. It's like selling a house for them, each college grad paid a sum equivalent to a single family home. And people just won't stop trying to get into these colleges and they are expanding like crazy. NYU is one of my former clients so I know how much they are growing.

That one pulled in 2 million a year in revenue easy. Simple story, they lost their lease, wasn't available at any price. Dumb on their part for not buying the property many years ago. The lot is getting developed

Just like any business (yes, higher education is still a business) I don't mind if they expand. In fact it is good to see business do well in NY but they need to make their buildings more mix-use, i.e. more ground floor retail.

Right now, their buildings just like many of the East side medical buildings/hospitals do not have retail so many of the blocks and neighborhoods where they are located are pretty much boring and dead.

For example, I love that they are building over a one story lone standing retaurant and parking lot here but include ground floor retail in the new building and have McDonald's come back in the retail space when it's done. It's a win-win for everyone: the block retains retail, the school gets new space, McDonald's gets to come back and the students have another food option.
