Brooklyn Prospect Charter School will construct a new home for its first middle school at 160 17th Street in Gowanus – moving the existing middle school from its current co-location with the Brooklyn Prospect High School to a ground-up, fully dedicated facility designed exclusively for its middle school program. The move is currently scheduled for the fall of 2019. It will be a District 15 middle school.
The 7- story, 30,000 square-foot project is planned to include a large commons and outdoor space, a gymnasium, auditorium, and library. In addition to housing traditional classrooms, the building will also feature music and art studios, science labs, and specialized reading rooms.
With the Gowanus campus project expected to break ground in 2017, this build will be one of two Brooklyn Prospect on-going constructions for facilities that will be dedicated to middle school use. The Brooklyn Prospect Clinton Hill Middle School (District 13), located at 1100 Fulton Street, is expected to be completed by fall of 2018.
