10-Story, 180,000-Square-Foot Collegiate School Close to Topping Out at 301 Freedom Place South, Upper West Side

Construction is a single floor away from topping out at 301 Freedom Place South, located between West 61st and 62nd streets on the southern end of the Upper West Side. That’s where a 10-story, 179,863-square-foot Collegiate School, a private, all-boys prep school, is under construction. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. A theater, a gymnasium, a fitness center, and a cafeteria will be located on the ground and cellar levels. Classrooms will span the second through ninth floors, with a library on the fifth floor. The 143-foot-tall structure has been┬ádesigned by Kohn Pedersen Fox. Completion is expected in 2017.
