March 13 bid deadline set for Cold Spring Hills, N.Y., development site

13.28-acre parcel, zoned to accommodate up to 185 multifamily units, drawing strong interest


Cushman & Wakefield has announced March 13 as the bid deadline for a 13.28-acre multifamily development opportunity in Cold Spring Hills. Set between the prestigious Cold Spring Country Club and famed Oheka Castle, the picturesque site on East Gate Drive has drawn strong interest since coming online in January.

Currently owned by Cold Spring Country Club, the acreage is zoned Residential-Open Space Cluster District. “This property enables the creation of a distinctive community flanked by one of the area’s most well-known private country clubs and one of the world’s most prestigious wedding and event venues,” noted Cushman & Wakefield’s Andrew Merin, who is marketing the offering with team members Brian Whitmer and Ryan Dowd, based in East Rutherford, N.J., along with Tom Donovan from the commercial real estate services firm’s Queens office.

“As anticipated, interest from the development community has been strong and steady,” Merin added. “This truly is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for a high-end condominium developer to create a distinctive community on Long Island’s Gold Coast, where strong regional demand for luxury, for-sale multifamily product is being spurred by an affluent, aging population. These residents are seeking opportunities to relocate from single-family residences to well-amenitized, maintenance-free condo homes.”

While this offering is only a land/development play, it represents the fourth golf club assignment for this Cushman & Wakefield team. They also orchestrated the successful trades of The Woodmere Club in Woodmere, N.Y., Edgewood Country Club in River Vale, N.J., and Shackamaxon in Scotch Plains, N.J. This team specializes exclusively in investment sales of office, industrial, multifamily, land and retail properties throughout New Jersey, New York, and Fairfield County, Conn. The team has completed $27 billion worth of transactions since 2000, closing over $2.2 billion in sales in 2017.
