Work Might Actually Start at Embattled Former P.S. 64

New, 1 comment

Developer Gregg Singer bought the former P.S. 64 on East 9th Street in 1998 for $3.15 million, and has spent the last 17 years alternately trying to develop it into a dormitory and sell it for $40 million, with neither option working out so far. The latest update, via EV Grieve, is that permits for the dorm, for Joffrey Ballet School, were approved last month, to the surprise of East Villagers who have been lobbying for the landmarked building to be converted into a community facility, as zoning sort of requires. However, a Stop Work Order was issued at the site last September because Singer's application listed Joffrey as a "not-for-profit with housing accommodations as opposed to a dormitory," when it is, in fact, not. So another one may be forthcoming.
