An anonymous Bronx-based LLC has filed applications to redevelop the severely dilapidated three-story commercial structure at 15-20 Central Avenue, in Far Rockaway, into a five-story school building. The redevelopment will incorporate the stand-alone four-story structure that exists behind the three-story building. The project will encompass 75,440 square feet and will rise 62 feet above street level. The school, which will likely be private, will have a gymnasium, cafeteria, administrative offices, classrooms, and conference rooms. William Leung’s Financial District-based architecture firm is the architect of record.

The building will be joined by at least four other similarly sized buildings, at 21-20 – 21-28 45th Road and 21-19 46th Avenue, which YIMBY reported on back in September. Igor Zaslavskiy’s Brooklyn-based Zproekt is the architect of record. The 15,000-square-foot site is occupied by multiple single-story warehouses. Demolition permits were filed over the summer.
