Document Description
The Project proposes a modification to an existing educational facility, include the removal of approximately 23,010 square feet of existing buildings and the addition of approximately 82,940 square feet of new school facilities, including the expansion of existing structures, a new Classroom Building, a new Science Building, a new Performing Arts Building, a new Gymnasium Building, and a new Commons Building, for a net increase of 59,930 square feet. Maximum building heights would range from 16 feet for new and expanded classrooms up to 40 feet for the proposed Commons Building and Performing Arts Building. The Gymnasium Building is proposed at a height of approximately 37 feet. Upon buildout of the Project, the Project Site would consist of 130,053 square feet of school facilities. The Project would add between 10 to 20 new classrooms, including between 7 and 10 specialty learning classrooms for art, science, and technology. The Project would not add any additional homeroom classrooms, and the project would not increase Curtis School’s 675 student enrollment cap. The Project would also reconfigure the parking area and the athletic fields to eliminate the conflict between students and cars when accessing the athletic fields. A total of approximately 189 marked parking spaces would be provided in the newly relocated surface parking areas. Project buildout would be phased over time and could start as early as 2021 & end as late as 2035
