The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) has filed applications to build a five-story, 67,405-square-foot school behind the existing five-story P.S. 46 Edgar Allen Poe branch, located at 279 East 196th Street, in Fordham. The expansion, with an address at 2760 Briggs Avenue, will host administrative offices, two cafeterias, and classrooms on the ground floor, followed by a gym, an exercise room, and a 280-person auditorium on the second floor, and finally classrooms on the third through fifth floors. An outdoor playground will be located on the fourth floor. Hell’s Kitchen-based Mitchell Giurgola Architects is the architect of record. An existing block-thru, single-story building must first be demolished.

Pedestrian-Friendly Fordham Plaza Opens To Public In West Bronx

The $34 million renovation and redesign of Fordham Plaza – bound by East 189th Street and East Fordham Road, and Park Avenue and Firefighters Boulevard in the West Bronx – has recently been completed, according to the Architect’s Newspaper. The plaza was designed by Grimshaw Architects and features a café, market canopies, public toilets, vegetation, and seating. It also serves 12 bus lines and is directly above the Fordham station on the Metro-North Railroad. The initiative behind the project was to reduce traffic accidents and to create a more pedestrian-friendly experience. The city’s Department of Design and Construction and Department of Transportation were behind the project.
