The 12-story Collegiate School on 78th street and West End Avenue will be replaced by a new 18-story residence whose apartments will average 3,000-square-feet each, reports NY Yimby.
“Collegiate Churches of New York has filed applications to transform the 12-story buildings at 370-378 West End Avenue, on the Upper West Side, into a single residential structure with 66 units. The Collegiate School building at 370 West End will be replaced with an 18-story structure, and once connected with 378 West End, will measure 198,095 square feet.”
The Collegiate School, whose famous garduates include JFK Jr., has already made plan to move down to the Riverside Center development on Riverside Boulevard between 59th and 61st street. The school sold the old building for $125 million, according to the Real Deal.
The church says it plans to use the money from the development for charity and building preservation.
“Funds generated by the planned redevelopment of the site will support the Collegiate Churches’ charitable programs and the preservation of its nearby West End Church building, the organization said.”
