Located in the West Village, and bound by West 10th Street, Washington Street, and Greenwich Street, a new proposed expansion for the Village Community School is currently being reviewed by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Approval would potentially bring a four-story addition, designed by Marvel Architects, to the eastern side of the property, at the corner of West 10th Street and Greenwich Street. The corner is currently the site of the school playground, originally built in 1945. The school and project site are located among two historic districts in Greenwich Village, sitting on the southwest corner of the established areas.
