NEW YORK CITY – Plans are underway for a new Mandell School at 795 Columbus Ave. in Manhattan, New York City. 795 Columbus Avenue is a 15-story apartment building that is part of Columbus Square, a retail and residential community currently under development between 97th and 100th Streets. The entire project is slated to feature more than 320,000 square feet and is being developed by the Chetrit Group. Aragon Construction and JRS Architect have been tapped to lead the 50,000-square-foot build-out, which will comprise the building’s entire second floor and half of both the first floor and cellar. Numerous sustainable materials are being utilized in construction and in the long term Mandell School hopes to be LEED certified. For instance, the school will have rubber flooring, which is comprised of tire rubber and other recycled waste materials. Also, all classrooms will have high-efficiency lighting, using digital photo sensors and dimmers that comply with the Daylight Harvesting requirement. As well as renovating the cellar, first and second floors, Aragon will be building out an 8,000-square-foot outdoor terrace.
