Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you news of the five-story, 65,585-square-foot public school – P.S. 398-Q – planned at 69-01 34th Avenue, in western Jackson Heights. Now, new details and renderings have been revealed by DNAinfo. P.S. 398-Q will be an elementary school for 476 students in the pre-K through fifth grade range. In addition to classrooms, a gymnasium, a cafeteria, administrative offices, and a library, the building will include an enclosed 4,000-square-foot rooftop playground, a music room, art rooms, and a guidance office. The school is expected to open in September of 2019. Purcell Architects is behind the design. The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) acquired the property for $6.3 million last year.
