An under-construction, $80.5 million development on West 155th Street that’s slated to become a children’s museum, an affordable-housing residence and a preschool education center, has won a $350,000 arts grant to help fund the museum’s exhibits, the New York Daily News reported. The museum, named the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Arts & Storytelling, could attract other major donors thanks to the grant from ArtPlace, a coalition of arts groups and foundations.

The museum, slated to open by mid-2014,  will cost $16 million to construct. It will span 16,400 square feet in the first two levels of the new 13-story building, which began construction in last month. The museum will have exhibition space, workshop space and a studio for a resident artist.

Besides the museum, there will be a total of 124 affordable housing units. It’s all being developed by the Broadway Housing Communities, a non-profit developer of affordable housing buildings uptown. [NYDN]
