HJ Sims is pleased to serve as sole underwriter for Broadview at Purchase College, a planned senior living community consisting of 174 independent living apartments  and 46 villas, 36 assisted living beds and 32 memory care beds on the campus of Purchase College in Purchase, Westchester County, New York.

Purchase College is approximately five miles from White Plains, NY and 25 miles from midtown Manhattan. It was founded in 1967 and one of the 13 comprehensive colleges of the State of New York (SUNY) system.

In 2011 legislation was passed in New York to permit SUNY to enter into a 75-year ground lease for development of Broadview, finding “provision of a senior learning community upon the grounds…is appropriate to further the objectives and purposes of [SUNY].” The legislation mandates that 100% of any rent Purchase College receives from the lease shall be used by the college for student financial aid and full-time teaching positions.

In addition to a wide variety of amenities and commons spaces, the community will include a Learning Commons consisting of classrooms, studios, a dining venue, gathering spaces, and performance spaces for use by Broadview residents and the College community and will be a place where residents, students and faculty can come together for lectures, seminars, performances, mentoring, tutoring and other educational purposes. Arts and cultural opportunities on the Purchase College campus also include the Neuberger Museum of Art, the Richard and Dolly Maass Gallery, and the Performing Arts Center, all a short walk from the Community.

This stunning new community will mix a vibrant college environment with senior living premium services and amenities. There will be unique opportunities for intergenerational learning & mentoring.

Broadview residents will become part of a senior living community embedded on the Purchase College campus. The Purchase College tagline ‘Think Wide Open’ will be the guiding principle for Broadview, offering opportunities to cross borders between generations, break down stereotypes and form mutually beneficial and lasting friendships.

Broadview will feature the Learning Commons (pictured above) which will be the fulcrum where students of all ages converge. Classrooms, galleries, studios, a coffeehouse and more will be housed within its expansive premises as Broadview’s hub. Meet, dine, take courses and attend lectures — each day here will present an open invitation to mingle with other residents, students and faculty in life-expanding relationships.

Market response to the new community has been strong with 83% of the independent living units reserved as of September 30, 2021.

In 2014 HJ Sims was selected as investment banker and has been actively involved in the development of the community and structuring this financing throughout the past seven years. In 2018 we raised $15 million in Bond Anticipation Notes for the initial development costs which supplemented a $5 million grant received by the Purchase College Foundation Housing Corporation.
