News 12 has learned the French-American School of New York will no longer build a campus in White Plains.           
The school announced the 130 acres property in the Gedney Farms neighborhood has been sold to a residential developer.
The school purchased the property back in 2010, but area residents fought the proposal saying it would create traffic problems and was too big for the neighborhood.
The city eventually approved a reduced project in 2017.
But over the years, the school found its space requirements and planning needs evolved leading them to conclude that selling the property was the best way to go.
