PS/IS 281M - East River School

PS/IS 281M is a new 95,000 sf, 7-story school building currently under construction. The site, at 425 East 35th Street, between the FDR Drive and First Avenue, is located in a flood zone and comprises pile foundations and a steel framed superstructure.

The design required extensive coordination with the developer of two adjacent high-rise buildings. A specific feature of the building is a rooftop playground that required an in-depth vibration analysis and the design of the structural framing to avoid transmittal of vibration to adjacent occupied spaces.

Client: New York School Construction Authority

Architect: Mitchell Giurgola Architects LLP
