This project is a major expansion of PS 144Q. Currently, P.S. 144Q serves 894 students from pre-K through fifth grade. Upon completion, the $52.4 million project will deliver a four-story addition with 26 new classrooms, a new entrance lobby and outdoor play areas, a cafeteria, office space, and a medical suite. The expanded areas are designed to accommodate an additional 590 students and address functional deficiencies of the existing school.
The new building is designed in accordance with the NYC Green Schools Guide and Rating System, which specifies energy efficiency and environmental requirements for New York City Public Schools. The building’s enclosure emulates the original school erected on 1931.
