Last week, the Abraham Joshua Heschel School filed with the city the sale of its 16,481-square-foot middle school property at 314 West 91st Street, between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive, to the Ideal School of Manhattan for $11.75 million.

The Jewish day school currently occupies three buildings in the area including 270 West 89th Street, 314 West 91st Street and 20 West End Avenue. They are currently building an additional property at 30 West End Avenue to house the middle school. The Ideal School will allow them to lease their current property till the construction at West End Avenue is complete, a spokesperson for the school said.

The Heschel school itself has a rich history. Opening its doors in the fall of 1984, its creation was spearheaded by founder Peter Geffen in 1981. It bought the property on 91st Street in 1991, according to public records.

Jon Epstein, Charles Kingsley and Yoav Oelsner of Grubb & Ellis represented the school in the transaction.

The Ideal School of Manhattan, an independent K-8th grade school, is currently based at 4 West 76th Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West. It will be moving out of those premises permanently once the 91st Street location becomes available.
