St. John’s University appreciates
the Oakdale campus’s historic value as an architectural,
educational and recreational resource for South Shore residents.
With its Planned Landmark Preservation (PLP) status, the site’s
architectural integrity will be protected and its continuing
usefulness ensured for the University and surrounding
By developing only 13 percent of the property, St. John’s can more
efficiently meet the site’s needs. This balanced approach includes
the costs of caring for an aging infrastructure and repairing
buildings that require stabilization.
The map below shows the areas of the campus that are covered by
the PLP overlay.
