Iona to Build 3-story Residence Hall

The New Rochelle Planning Board granted approval for the building.

From Iona College:

was granted approval by the New Rochelle Planning Board on Tuesday to move forward with plans to build Walsh Residence Hall on existing campus property.

The reconstruction of Walsh Hall, located in the center of campus, will be funded
by Iona College and will include three stories of residential housing that will accommodate 115 students and is part of the College’s mid-term plan to meet occupancy needs. The Walsh building will be razed and foundation work will begin sometime in May, with completion scheduled in the 2012 fall semester.

"This favorable outcome is a reflection of the benefits of active community planning and improving relationships with the city and community," said Dr. Joseph E. Nyre, president of Iona College. “I thank Mayor Bramson and members of the planning group who recently submitted an interim report to the City of New Rochelle and Iona College.”
