This project consisted of converting an existing 3-story US Postal Service Station located within Manhattan’s South Street Seaport historic district into a new public school serving the projected needs of the surrounding community. Located on Peck Slip between Pearl Street and Water Street, the new facility accommodates a capacity of 712 students in grades Pre-K through 5th grade. The project encompasses approximately 97,000 SF in 7 floors above grade. The project scope includes a 69,300 SF renovation and adaptive re-use of the four existing floors of the building and a 27,700 SF vertical addition of 3 new floors. Designed by Graves – MMA Architects, the school includes dedicated science classrooms, a library, a kitchen and dining complex, flexible all purpose “gymatorium”, and a rooftop playground.
