Back in October of 2015, the Harlem Hebrew Language Academy Charter School, located in the five-story building at 147 St. Nicholas Avenue, between West 117th and 118th streets in Harlem, filed applications for an expansion into the vacant corner lot on 118th Street. The five-story, 37,907-square-foot structure would be transformed into a six-story, 51,517-square-foot building through various vertical and horizontal expansions. Harlem+Bespoke now has an on-site rendering of the project, being designed by BL Companies Inc. Once completed, the building will include a cafeteria, classrooms, muti-purpose rooms, administration offices, and an auditorium.
