New York City (Brooklyn) County - The New York City School Construction Authority, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Conversion of Former Brooklyn Family Court into a New High School Facility. The action involves the New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) proposing to convert the former Brooklyn Family Court building in Downtown Brooklyn into a public high school facility containing up to approximately 1,075 seats.
The former Brooklyn Family Court building is located at the southeast corner of Adams and Johnson Streets (Block 140, Lot 10). The building, which contains a total of approximately 140,000 gross square feet, is currently vacant, owned by the City of New York, and under DOE's control. The proposed project would involve the full renovation of the existing five-story building for school use and occupancy, as well as replacement of the building's existing penthouse with a new, approximately 40-foot-tall sixth-floor addition. According to preliminary design plans, the proposed school facility would contain classrooms, administrative space, special education instruction rooms, a gymnasium/multi-purpose area, library, music rooms, computer/technical labs, kitchen/lunchroom, and support space. The front entrance to the school and main student entry area would be on Adams Street, along which the existing building possesses approximately 206 feet of frontage.
