Public School Coming to Angel Guardian Home Redevelopment
Barone Management has closed on the sale of a parcel of land to the New York City School Construction Authority in Brooklyn’s Dyker Heights neighborhood. The land sits within a 140,000-square-foot site that Barone acquired in August 2018.
The new school building represents one of three development phases on the property, and has been part of the development plan since Barone acquired it. The plan also includes a new three-story residential building and the long-term preservation of the original Angel Guardian Home for Children building located at 6301 12th Ave. This historic building (pictured) will be adaptively re-used and incorporated into an assisted living facility for seniors.
“We are transforming what was an underutilized site and, by including school and senior uses, we’re bridging a generation gap so people of all ages can learn from each other and grow together,” said Scott Barone, president of Barone Management.
