Private boys school in New York City plans an expansion of its high school

Aug. 4, 2022
The Browning School is planning to move its high school a few blocks away to the site of a 105-year-old parking garage in Manhattan.

A private all-boys school in New York City is planning to move its high school grades to a new location.

The Browning School officials say they have outgrown their Manhattan campus and are planning to move the high school a few blocks away into a former parking garage building, reports

Before the renovation of the 105-year-old facility can move forward, the city must approve some zoning changes.

The school's expansion plans would increase the building's height, now 64 feet, to 83 feet. Buildings on that block have a 75-foot height limit. 

Once renovated, the garage building will become home to 13 classrooms and offices across four floors, plus a library and cafeteria in the cellar, a regulation-sized gym on the upper floors, and a green roof.

The expansion will enable the school to increase its 400-student enrollment by about 100 over the next seven years. 

The renovation is expected to be completed in 2024.
