Cuomo is about to embark on his fourth stint as governor of New York after taking office in January 2011.
But he’s already set his sights on his next home.
Cuomo is reportedly working on a nursing home in New York City and plans to officially open it by the end of 2019, according to a New York Times article published Friday.
The story notes that Cuomo’s wife, Gweneth, has taken on the role of the company’s president and that the home will be run by the Cuomo family.
The article notes that the building is slated to be completed in the spring of 2019.
In a statement, Cuomo’s office said that the governor is “focused on working hard on his vision for our first nursing home and is committed to working with New York’s top nursing home administrators and regulators to ensure it is safe, secure, and accessible for our residents and their families.”
Cuomo has long been known for his personal involvement with his nursing home’s operations.
The governor and his wife were involved in setting up a nursing-home development program in the Bronx that the Times described as “the largest and most successful in the country.”
As the Times noted, Cuomo also became a founding board member of the New York State Nurses Association.
Cuomo’s decision to open up a new home in Manhattan comes at a time when the city is grappling with rising housing costs, including the soaring cost of rent.
According to the Times, rent for one-bedroom apartments in Manhattan was rising at a rate of about 7.5 percent a year in 2015.
Cuomo, a Democrat, is facing a primary challenger, former state Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, who is considered a more moderate choice for the Democratic nomination.
