New York City will build an addition to replace portables at Brooklyn high school

Nov. 25, 2020
The 681-seat addition to Medgar Evers College Prep is scheduled to open in 2025.

The New York City school system will construct a five-story building to replace portable classrooms at Medgar Evers College Preparatory in Brooklyn.

The Patch reports that the 681-seat addition will provide a new gym, science labs and other space on the campus in the Crown Heights neighborhood.

The City University of New York, School Construction Authority and Department of Education are partnering on the project, which is set to open in 2025.

The building will replace eight portable classroom units next to the main building on Carroll Street. It will have 22 classrooms, four science labs, a resource room, supervisory office, staff conference room and space for bike storage.

It is also set to have 50,000 square feet of space to be used by CUNY. Medgar Evers College, a senior CUNY college, is found just a few blocks from the high school.
