Permits have been filed and approved for a three-story addition to P.S. 131 Abigail Adams at 170-07 84th Avenue, in Jamaica Hills, Queens. The site is seven blocks away from the 169th Street subway station, serviced by the F trains. The NYC School Construction Authority will be responsible for the development.

The 63-foot tall structure will yield 71,950 square feet within. The new building will create classrooms, a library, storage space, offices, and a cafeteria. Most significant to the development will be the ground-floor gymnasium, replacing the outdoor recreation space on site.

Urbahn Architects will be responsible for the design.
