Yeshiva Lev Torah, a K-8 school, has filed applications for a five-story, 39,830-square-foot facility at 30 Village Road North, in the heart of Gravesend. The new 75-foot-tall structure will contain a lobby, administrative offices, and classrooms on the ground floor, a cafeteria in the cellar, classrooms and a teachers’ lounge on the second floor, classrooms on the third and fourth floors, followed by a gymnasium, a library, and a Midrash (probably a Beit Midrash, or study hall) on the fifth floor. Thomas Scibilia’s Brooklyn-based NA Design Studio is the architect of record. The Yeshiva is seeking a variance for bulk from the Board of Standards and Appeals, according to the applications. The 62-foot-wide, 11,075-square-foot assemblage consists of two two-story houses. Demolition permits haven’t been yet filed. The Avenue U stop on the F train is located around the corner.
