K-8 school in Manhattan to meet Green Schools Guide standard

Designed by Dattner Architects, a new K-8 grade school in Manhattan will meet the Green Schools Guide, which the firm developed for the NYC School Construction Authority. PS/IS 342 will feature more than 20 classrooms, art and music rooms, a science suite, a library, a gymnasium, and a cafeteria. The new school, which will be built within Extell’s Riverside Center development, will be located in the first four floors of a high-rise tower designed by Atelier Christian de Portzamparc Architects (design architect) and SLCE Architects (executive architect). The school is scheduled to be ready for September 2015 occupancy.
