City Planning 180-Seat Pre-K School At Vacant Lot At 170 8th Street, Gowanus
The city’s School Construction Authority is proposing to build an 180-seat pre-kindergarten school at 170 8th Street/197 9th Street, in Gowanus, located less than a block away from the F, G, and R trains’ stop at Fourth Avenue and 9th Street. According to Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the 13,500 square-foot thru-block lot is currently privately owned. The agency is beginning the public review process and is accepting the community’s input through mid December. The property’s two-story predecessor was demolished back in 1993.
