Permits have been filed for a four-story school at 1846 West 1846 West 13th Street, in Gravesend, Brooklyn. The facility will be an addition to the existing space at P.S. 97, known as The Highlawn. The site is six blocks away from the 25th Avenue subway station, serviced by the D and F trains, and two stops away from Coney Island. The NYC School Construction Authority will be responsible for the development.
The debate regarding 80 Flatbush Avenue continues. While the project would rise across the street from what had long been Brooklyn’s tallest tower at One Hanson Place, its opponents’ attacks have escalated following YIMBY’s report on a poll showing a 3:1 margin of support, with the NIMBY group behind its creation and deletion accusing “foreign bots” of meddling in the outcome. Today, however, comes another marker of broad community support, as we have word that the Arab American Family Support Center (AAFSC) has officially endorsed the mixed-use development.
Last week, ground was broken on the site of a new Jersey City school. BelovED Community Charter School is building a new middle school at 535 Grand Street. The organization, currently serving 960 students, is named to honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision for a “Beloved Community.” New Jersey Community Capital and Provident Bank have given $12.5 million for construction financing of the project. Friends 2 and Hollister Construction Services are responsible for the development.
