Permits have been filed for a five-story school building at 661 St. Nicholas Avenue in Hamilton Heights, Manhattan. Located between West 141st Street and West 145th Street, the lot also addressed as 655 St. Nicholas is near the 145th Street subway station, serviced by the A, B, C, and D trains. Harlem Academy is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 75-foot-tall development will yield 70,270 square feet, with 28,921 square feet designated for community facility space. The steel-based structure will also have a 30-foot-long rear yard. The $31-million-budget project will grow the school from 120 to 240 students. Components include a kindergarten, a second section for each middle school grade, a library, and a large outdoor play and sports space.
Perkins Eastman is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
