A Huntington school property is on the market for $17 million and is being marketed to developers as a potential senior housing complex.
The 11-acre campus, which used to house the Touro Law Center before the school moved to Central Islip in 2007, is now home to the School of Mahanaim, a college that offers programs in theology, music and English as a second language.
“Any kind of buyer is welcome,” says listing agent Daniel Kim of East Coast Realtors. “A school or a developer. There are a lot of possibilities.”
Huntington Superintendent of Schools James Polansky said the property, which was the Robert K. Toaz Junior High School before it was sold to Yeshiva University and became Touro’s law school, has a deed restriction prohibiting it from being used as anything other than an educational facility.
“That restriction remains binding on current and future owners of the property,” Polansky said in a statement. “The District, its Board of Education and Administration remain committed to enforcement of the restriction. We are distressed to observe that the realtor is advertising the property to developers as though the restrictive covenant does not exist.”
Kim declined to comment until he could further into the convenant.
