Supreme Court OK's Eminent Domain Use for Columbia


The United States Supreme Court rejected an appeal Monday from neighborhood businesses. The supreme court OK's use of Eminent Domain for Columbia University's expansion into the Manhattanville section of West Harlem.

Owners filed a lawsuit challenging the Empire State Development Corporation's plan to to use eminent domain to force them out so the university could expand.

The 17-acre site, in the Manhattanville section of West Harlem, is less than a mile from Columbia’s main campus in New York City’s Morningside Heights section. It will add more than 6.8 million square feet to the university, including a new business school and science facilities.

The plan was challenged by the owners of four self-storage facilities and two gas stations that would be razed.

In a statement from the Empire State Development Corporation, a spokesperson said, "This victory represents a significant step toward achieving the many goals of the project, including strengthening New York as an international center for premier education and academic research programs, improving facilities and infrastructure within the footprint and the surrounding community, generating thousands of jobs and creating much-needed open space in the neighborhood."

The state's top court upheld the use of eminent domain for the project. It includes new buildings, two acres of public open space, and tree-lined sidewalks.

Neighborhood Report: Hamilton Heights

Uptown West, from West 135th Street to West 155th Street, from Riverside Drive to St. Nicholas and Edgecombe Avenues.

Hamilton Grange
The Harlem sub-neighborhood of Hamilton Heights boasts some of the city’s most desired townhouses, and is best known for “Strivers’ Row.” Parts of Strivers’ Row were designed by the noted architecture firm of McKim, Mead and White, and in addition to the gardens in back, many of the townhouses have lovely staircases, fireplaces, pocket doors, and moldings. 

Hamilton Heights in Upper Manhattan was the home of Alexander Hamilton from 1802 - 1804. Alexander Hamilton was the first United States Secretary of the Treasury, a Founding Father, and political philosopher. 

His Manhattan home Hamilton Grange has recently been moved from Convent Avenue to St. Nicholas Park.

Today Hamilton Heights is mostly a housing fusion of palatial 19th century brownstones, spacious pre-wars and tenement walk-ups.

Developers have converted brownstone, shells of buildings and narrow vacant lots into condominium apartments. For Manhattan home buyers, Hamilton Heights provides an opportunity to live in a neighborhood with small-scale buildings. 

Zoning does not allow for very large buildings. These apartments, typically floor-throughs and duplexes come with town house amenities, like terraces, gardens, fireplaces, and uncommonly good light for Manhattan.

A diversified mix of Buyers are coming to Hamilton Heights for the neighborhood’s history, the houses, brownstones and new condos that cost much less than they would a mile to the south.

Currently there are approximately 125 active listings in Hamilton Heights. Prices range from a $175,000 for an HDFC (income cap retrictions) 1 bedroom coop to a $4,295,000 for a 4,400 square foot single family townhouse. * updated 5/7/2016

NYS Approves Columbia University Expansion

Rendering of new Columbia campus at 131st Street & Broadway

Empire State Development Corporation has adopted the Columbia University General Project Plan and authorized a public hearing for the university’s proposed West Harlem expansion.

The state agency declared the 17-acre expansion footprint as blighted, a necessary step before using eminent domain. Two reports characterized the area by aging, poorly maintained and functionally obsolete industrial buildings, with little indication of recent reinvestment to revive their generally deteriorated conditions.

The $6.28 billion project, which is to be funded entirely by the university, will add up to 6.8 million square feet of new, state-of-the-art facilities in up to 16 new buildings and in an adaptively reused existing building.

The additional space will be used primarily for graduate-level teaching facilities, academic research, housing and recreation, and open active ground floor uses. The proposal also calls for the development of open spaces accessible to the general public, including widened sidewalks, mid-block open spaces, a large square and smaller open spaces.

The site of the proposed expansion of University facilities, which would occur over the next 25 years, is a 17-acre area just north of Columbia’s historic Morningside Heights campus in the Manhatanville industrial section of West Harlem and consists primarily of the four large blocks from 129th to 133rd streets between Broadway and 12th Avenue, including the north side of 125th Street.

The new facilities would also include three properties on the east side of Broadway from 131st to 134th streets. The majority of the construction in the proposed initial phase of the project would occur on the block bounded by 129th and 125th streets on the south and 130th Street on the north, between 12th Avenue and Broadway.
