Exterior work is nearing completion on the Marymount School of New York‘s ten-story expansion at 115 East 97th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by COOKFOX Architects, the structure will yield flexible learning spaces, state-of-the-art STEAM classrooms, athletic facilities, a library, theater, music room, alumnae parlor, dining room and terrace with an edible garden, and a “FabLab.” Triton Construction is the general contractor and Terrain-NYC Landscape Architecture is the landscape designer for the property, which is located between Lexington and Park Avenues and is aiming for LEED certification.
A little over a month ago, YIMBY reported on filings for a 13-story, 111,510 square-foot academic building at 115 East 97th Street, on the Upper East Side. The structure would allow the Marymount School to consolidate its programs into one facility, and DNAinfo now has a rendering of the school, which is being designed by CookFox Architects. The building will sport terraces and rooftop gardens, and will be equipped with the latest green technology, aiming for LEED certification. The project is expected to be sent to the Board of Standards and Appeals in the next few weeks, and ground breaking is tentatively slated for 2017.
