The School Construction Authority of New York City will reveal plans for the new pre-K through 8th grade school slated for the Riverside Center development on the Upper West Side tonight, DNAinfo reported. The four-story school, which will be the first new school to be built in the area in decades, will open in 2015.

Riverside Center is a five-tower apartment and retail complex between 60th and 61st streets along West End Avenue that was approved by the City Council late last year. The contentious approval process was lengthened by Upper West Side residents’ concerns that the school, P.S./I.S. 342, be large enough to accommodate the growing school-age population in the neighborhood.

When complete, the complex, by Extell Development, will offer 2,500 apartments, a movie theater, auto showroom, office space and parking on what is now the largest piece of vacant land on the Upper West Side.

Dattner Architects, who have been selected to design the school, will present their plans for it, which include a gym, cafeteria and 20 classrooms, at Community Board 7’s Youth, Education and Libraries committee meeting this evening. [DNAinfo]
