The Trevor Day School is selling the Upper East Side townhouse where its childhood education program is currently housed. This move is part of Trevor Day’s effort to consolidate its properties, according to Matthew Pravda of Leslie J. Garfield & Co., who is a listing broker, along with Jed Garfield. Originally built in 1912, the six-story, 25-foot-wide mansion at 11 East 89th Street is currently configured as classrooms and offices and has two outdoor playgrounds.

While the building, which will be delivered vacant, lends itself to a more institutional use — a school building or foundation offices, perhaps — Pravda noted that the 13,770 square-foot property could also be converted to a single family home.

In March, Trevor Day got final Department of Buildings approval to construct a 12-story school inside a 101,243-square-foot building at 312 East 95th Street. That facility would house more than 500 students in grades seven to 12. Those students currently study at another Trevor Day-owned building at 1 West 88th Street. Once the construction is complete, first through sixth graders will relocate to the 88th Street property, as The Real Deal previously reported.

It is unclear where Trevor Day’s preschool will be housed following the sale. The head of school’s early childhood program was not immediately available for comment.

Trevor Day is just one of several private schools in the process of juggling their real estate holdings. The Hewitt School recently hired Robert A.M. Stern Architects to design an expansion for its all-girls private school, also situated on the Upper East Side, according to news reports. And the Archdiocese of New York is selling a Lower East Side Jesuit middle school for boys at 204 Forsyth Street, between East Houston and Stanton streets, it was previously reported.
