On June 3, public hearing over plans to create new school in tower at Dean Street & Sixth Avenue

According to a notice from Brooklyn Community Board 8, the CB will hold a public hearing Wednesday, June 3, at 7 pm, on the New York City School Construction Authority's (SCA) plans to create a primary and intermediate school within District 13.

The location: CNR-Center Light Health Care Center, 727 Classon Avenue (corner of Park Place). Public comments will be accepted until 6/29/15.

The school is to be housed in B15, the a 27-story tower with more than 300 market-rate apartments, part of the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park project, just east of Sixth Avenue between Dean and Pacific streets. (The previous occupants of the site were removed by eminent domain.)

The school is expected to occupy 100,000 square feet in the building, and will have capacity for 616 seats. Greenland Forest City Partners has agreed to build space for the school, which will be paid for by the SCA.

The documents below include the Notice of Filing, Site Plan, and supplemental materials.

The "Alternate Sites Analysis" below states, "Because the proposed space within the planned B-15 building would help to accommodate the increase in the local public school student population associated with the new housing that is under consideration and planned as part of the Atlantic Yards project, no alternative sites have been considered."

So there.
