New York University has revealed renderings of a new public health school set to debut as part of its Greenwich Village campus. Located three blocks east of Washington Square Park, the project will establish much-needed facilities for the university’s rapidly expanding School of Global Public Health which offers a multidisciplinary program preparing students to reinvent the world’s public health models.

Permits have been filed for a three-story school building at 64-29 218th Street in Flushing, Queens. Located between 64th Avenue and 67th Avenue, the lot is also addressed as 64-45 218th Street. The closest train station is Port Washington on the Long Island Railroad. NYC School Construction Authority is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) has filed plans to build a four-story, 46,459-square-foot expansion on the grounds of P.S. 41 (a.k.a. Senator John D. Calandra School), at 3041 Bruckner Boulevard, in the East Bronx’s Schuylerville neighborhood. The 61-foot-tall expansion will be located at 3047 Bruckner Boulevard, which is north of the existing school. It will feature a cafeteria and administrative offices on the ground floor, and classrooms, storage space, and additional offices on the upper floors. George George’s Chelsea-based Kliment Halsband Architects is the architect of record. The current school grounds consist of the actual building, playgrounds, and a wooded park area.
The IFC Center, deeply in need of more space, is one step closer to an expansion. The Landmarks Preservation Commission recently approved plans for the movie theater at Sixth Avenue and West 3rd Street to expand to a vacant lot behind it at 14-16 Cornelia Street. That would bump IFC’s five theaters seating a total of 480 people to 11 theaters seating a total of 948 people, while also clearing out the sidewalk with added lobby space.
Two days ago, YIMBY reported that the IFC Center, at 323 6th Avenue in the West Village, would double the size of their theater, from five to 11 screens. The 9,743 square-foot expansion will fill the vacant lot behind the existing theater, and now Indiewire has renderings of the Cornelia Street façade. Talks are underway with various community and city officials, and approval by the Community Board and the Board of Standards and Appeals is expected by early 2016.
