Jonas Bronck Academy
Bronx, NY
After twelve years leasing space at Manhattan College in Riverdale, the Jonas Bronck Academy, a college-preparatory middle school, landed space of its own in the new Fordham Place Office Tower on the corner of Webster Avenue and Fordham Road. Occupying the newly renovated fourth and fifth floors, the space fulfills programming requirements for the NYC School Construction Authority and includes a library, classrooms, music room, 120 person multi-purpose room, 3,000 sq. ft kitchen/ servery and cafeteria, art classroom, administrative space and 1,200 sq. ft. of science rooms/lab, locker rooms and custodial areas. Lilker Associates provided MEPS services for the building, which is in the process of achieving LEED Silver certification.
