Former I.M. Pei–designed IBM Campus in Westchester Could Become Boarding School
June 25, 2019
In 2016, IBM sold its corporate campus in Somers, NY for almost $32 million to Sebastian Capital, a real estate firm based in Manhattan. This month, Evergreen Ridge, LLC, informally proposed transforming the 750-acre property into a private day and boarding STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) high school. The campus, designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners (1984–1989), consists of five pyramidal, zigzagging buildings that would be repurposed to accommodate 1,800 students at its full capacity. Operations would begin in 2021 with a summer program and expand over time, reaching capacity after three years. The developers proposed to use the space to create sporting fields, a field house, and a building dedicated to the arts.
