Gyrodyne Announces Cortlandt Manor Approval of Medical Oriented Zoning District (3/29/23)

Company Receives MOD Designation for Mixed-Use 154,000 Square foot Property, Paving the Way for Increased Value Creation

ST. JAMES, N.Y., March 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Gyrodyne, LLC (NASDAQ: GYRO), an owner and manager of a diversified portfolio of real estate properties, announced that, on March 20, 2023, the Town of Cortlandt Manor's Board unanimously adopted a SEQRA findings statement, effectively completing the environmental review process, and approved the adoption of a Local Law Establishing a Medical Oriented Zoning District ("MOD") that Gyrodyne's Cortlandt Manor property will be reclassified in. The law establishing the MOD becomes effective upon its filing by the Town of Cortlandt Manor with the New York Secretary of State, which is expected to occur on or about April 9, 2023 (20 days following adoption).

Under the adopted MOD, Gyrodyne received MOD campus designation for a mixed-use 154,000 square foot property (including the operating lot) comprised of 150,000 square feet of medical use and 4,000 square feet of retail use space.

The purpose of the MOD is to expand the Town's medical infrastructure and encourage economic development, including capital investment, job creation and housing options.

Gyrodyne's existing 31,421 square foot Cortlandt Medical Center, situated on 13.8 acres, is located directly across the street from New York Presbyterian's Hudson Valley Hospital Center, the largest employer in the Town, and within the boundaries of the MOD. Gyrodyne has committed resources toward both market research and feasibility studies in support of achieving entitlements to maximize the value of the property.

Paul Lamb, Gyrodyne's Chairman, said, "The Town's approval of the MOD is a major step forward toward maximizing the value of our Cortlandt Manor property. With this important milestone behind us, we can continue moving this project forward and drive enhanced shareholder value."

Gary Fitlin, Gyrodyne's Chief Executive Officer, said, "The MOD adoption represents the culmination of eight years of Gyrodyne's management, planners and engineers collaborating with the Town to help plan the MOD and identify issues and solutions. We do not plan on developing the property ourselves, but rather will focus on positioning it to be sold in the shortest period of time with the least amount of risk. Achieving MOD designation provides for increased development flexibility and will allow us to sell the property at a valuation higher than previously possible."
