The Collegiate Churches of New York filed plans today to convert the former Collegiate School campus at 260 West 78th Street into apartments, The Real Deal reports. The project will result in 66 residential units across 198,000 square feet (a hefty average of over 3,000 square feet apiece), spread out between the new 18-story building and the adjacent building at 378 West End Avenue (above), which will be "rehabilitated." Architectural firm COOKFOX is handling both buildings.
The Collegiate School, which got $97 million in the sale of the building, is expanding and moving down to West 62nd Street, where its GLUCK+-designed new building has already caused a bit of a stir.
