The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) is proposing to build a 600-seat middle school at 38-04 48th Street, located on the corner of Barnett Avenue in northern Sunnyside. Before the SCA can purchase the property, the City Council must first approve the project. Community board meetings are currently underway, DNAinfo reported, and feedback will be accepted until November 4. The site is currently occupied by a two-story parking garage structure designed by Clarence Stein, the architect behind Sunnyside Gardens, although the property is not located within the Sunnyside Gardens Historic District. At this point, the SCA has not made a decision whether to demolish the structure or incorporate it into the school if the project were to move forward.
