Smile NEW ROCHELLE | 690 North Avenue | FT | 7 FLOORS

Project: 690 North Avenue

Iona College was recently awarded a $2.5 million grant from the state Higher Education Capital Matching Grant Program Board to put toward its planned North Avenue residence hall, officials said.

The capital grant will go toward the construction of the hall that will house 310 students this fall. The HECAP program, established in 2005 by the state legislature and Gov. George Pataki, provides matching funding for the state’s independent colleges and universities.

Iona broke ground on the dorm last May after purchasing and demolishing the former Mirage Diner. The hall, which will feature taxable retail and restaurant space open to the public on its first floor as well as on-site parking, is expected to be completed and open to students before the coming fall semester. The North Avenue Residence Hall will be at the corner of North and Summit avenues across from the college’s main entrance.
