Construction has kicked off at 1475 41st Street, where developers have gained approvals to expand and repurpose an existing four-story building into a new school. Located on an 8,000-square-foot corner lot in Borough Park, Brooklyn, the school is expected to debut by September 2020 and will top out at seven stories.
From Bricolage Designs, preliminary renderings on construction site postings illustrate a white- and red-brick masonry structure. The building features a setback above the fifth floor, above which sits outdoor play areas.
Congregation Machna Shalva, a private Jewish-owned entity, is responsible for the expansion and reportedly purchased the property in July 2019 for $11 million. The Congregation already manages a nearby all-girls school at 1462-62 43rd Street, also located in Borough Park.
