PS 90 update: NDI construction phase

Back in November we told you that PS 90 found the ideal community organization to occupy their massive cellar space. The National Dance Institute (NDI) closed on the 18,000 square foot space at a cost of $6 million and the space will house dance studios, administrative offices, and a gallery of images from Jacques d’Amboise‘s personal collection. The aim is to have the construction completed by June of this year. So far the space has been framed out as you can see from the images above. NDI will have a separate private entrance on 147th Street.

PS 90 is a formerly abandoned public school designed by Charles B.J. Snyder in 1905 located at 220 West 148th Street between Frederick Douglass and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevards. There are 75 units in a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom, all with landscaped courtyard views either north or south facing.  About 50% of the units have closed or are currently in contract.

In August when we gave you a first look at PS 90, the common spaces had not yet been completed. In the photo gallery below is a look at the building’s amenities that include a media room, fitness room, art room, and a storage room.

Each unit at PS90 features high ceilings (up to 12 feet), Herringbone pattern European oak floors, Quartzite countertops and custom walnut toned cabinetry, and is equipped with Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances and thermostatically controlled central air and heat.
