The Institute had $65 million in assets, dominated by the value of this fresco - speculated at $50 million. The total debt liability of the school sits at just over $10 million. The ideal purchaser of this property, as per real estate experts, would be one who maintains it as a school.

With the outcome of this sale, the future of this historic campus hangs in the balance, leaving the city and its residents in suspense.
