The Whittle School to Open 620,000 SF Campus at The Wheeler in Brooklyn
NEW YORK CITY — Private education institution The Whittle School & Studios will open a 620,000-square-foot campus at The Wheeler, a 10-story tower in Brooklyn. Tishman Speyer recently completed construction of the tower, which is situated on top of a renovated Macy’s department store. The developer is finalizing construction of 11 Hoyt, an adjacent 48-unit condominium tower on the site of the former Macy’s parking garage. Shimoda Design Group was the architect of the project. The Whittle School will open its early learning program later this year, followed by its full Kindergarten through 12th grade program in September 2021. The Wall Street Journal reports that the project is expected to cost $300 million. Mark Aloia, Gary Rosenberg and Arielle Frost of Rosenberg & Estis P.C. represented Whittle in the lease negotiations.
