CLINTON HILL — A new, seven-story charter school could be opening in Clinton Hill. 

The new school at 15 Quincy St., between Downing Street and Classon Avenue, would include three floors for classrooms, a cafeteria, a resource room, an underground parking garage and office space for teachers, according to permits filed with the city’s Department of Buildings.

The 43,448-square-foot building would stand 75 feet high, according to the filings, which were first reported by New York YIMBY

The basement level would include a parking garage with 17 spaces, storage and utility rooms. The first floor would feature a lobby, offices, a kitchen, a patio and a cafeteria, as well as a mezzanine level with seating for 49.

Classrooms and more offices would be located on the second through fifth floors, the filings showed. There would be a resource room, offices, lockers, a gym on the seventh floor, and a teacher’s lounge and storage on the sixth floor.

The school will be designed by the Stamford, Connecticut-based Partners for Architecture.

The new school will most likely be built on a parking lot behind the existing building at 15 Quincy St. — a six-story, affordable housing building developed by the nonprofit Pratt Area Community Council (now IMPACCT Brooklyn) and BFC Partners, according to IMPACCT's director of housing Kuza Woodard.

Woodard said the school is still in the "very early" planning stages and that the project has not yet been approved by the building's investors.

The lot would also have to be rezoned since the current building at 15 Quincy St. takes up the lot's maximum floor-area ratio, he said. 

He did not say who would be operating the school or when it was estimated to open.

A spokesperson with the developer behind the project, Manatus Development Group, was not immediately available for comment.
