NYC School Construction Authority, on April 13, filed a permit application for a $1.1 million change in use to three floors and the cellar of the 162,701-square-foot school building at 142-30 Barclay Avenue in Queens.
The plans call for no change in size but a change in use of the 58-foot tall, 3-story, building.
The project is described in the filings as: filing for corrective work, removal of open objections and corrections to errors on current certificate of occupancy. Obtain new certificate of occupancy. The initial cost as reported in the DOB filing for the work described in this permit application is $1,074,905.
The plans show that the work will occur on the cellar and floors 1-3 of the school. In the cellar, storage space will be converted to office/work space, while work will be done on classrooms of floors 1-3.
The school opened in 1964 and is named after John Bowne, an English immigrant who is remembered for his work as a religious freedom activist.
