New Union City school to use remnants from old building

January 01, 2010 |
Columbus Elementary School #3

With 35 classrooms, a media center, science labs, and music rooms, Columbus Elementary School #3 in Union City, N.J., is being built on a confined site, so designer RSC Architects, in conjunction with HOK, will implement underground parking and a rooftop playground. RSC Architects also salvaged classical porticos from a former school at the site; they will be reused to create dramatic entryways in the new auditorium. The $25-million K-5 school should open for students in August 2011.
