A rendering has been revealed of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s planned three-story expansion atop their headquarters at 405 West 55th Street, located on the corner of Ninth Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen. The new space is dubbed the Elaine P. Wynn & Family Foundation Education Wing, DNAinfo reported. It will feature four new dance studios, two classrooms, and offices. The latest building permits indicate the complex will gain 10,227 square feet of space, up from 50,786. Gramercy-based Iu + Bibliowicz Architects is the architect of record. A roof-breaking ceremony was held last week for the project. Completion is expected in the fall of 2017.
