Permits have been filed for a four-story school at 2500 Fish Avenue, in The Bronx’s Pelham Gardens, on the outdoor playground for PS 97. The neighborhood mostly consists of single-family homes, with the occasional small apartment complex. The site is a half mile from Pelham Parkway Station, serviced by the 5 train.
The 79-foot tall structure will yield 90,820 square feet for the community facility. A cafeteria and gymnasium are the largest features, on floors one and three, respectively. The only other facilities created will be classrooms and offices.
La Rocca Green Architects will be responsible for the design. An estimated completion date has not been announced, and The New York City School Construction Authority is responsible for developing the project.
