Who, What, When
Gavel falls on Moore Hall
Moore’s buyer is NorStar Development, with offices in Albany and Buffalo, N.Y. NorStar had its eye on the property back in 2006, but the deal was sealed just this past May, for $1.125 million. The developers are reconsidering their plans and timing in light of the current economic slowdown, but the basic scenario is for the construction of 18 luxury condominium units in Queen Anne-style townhouses.
While many Skidmore alumni will be sorry to see the six-story pink behemoth disappear, some neighbors were quoted in Schenectady’s Daily Gazette saying they’d welcome the new development in its place. To read alumni reminiscences about Moore Hall, click here. —SR
