NEW YORK—The Speyer Legacy School has signed a long-term, 85,000-sq.-ft. expansion and relocation to occupy a two-building campus at 400 West 59th Street and 925 Ninth Ave. in Manhattan’s West Side.
Colliers International’s Alex Jinishian, vice chairman, and Phil Amarante, senior managing director arranged the deal on behalf of The Speyer Legacy School, while Cushman & Wakefield’s Josh Kuriloff, vice chairman, Jodi Roberts, managing director, and Andrew Braver, associate, represented the landlord, The Brodsky Organization.
The school, which is designed for intellectually advanced student in grades kindergarten through eight, has seen an uptick in demand for enrollment. This demand drove this transaction, with the school increasing in size from approximately 9,000 sq. ft. at its current location to approximately 85,000 sq. ft. at its new location.
Construction on the school’s two new buildings is slated to begin this spring with plans to open in the fall semester.
Design plans for the school include classrooms, stem and media labs, a music and performing arts wing, dance studio, recording studio, cafeteria and gymnasium. Davis Brody Bond is serving as the architect for the project.
