Summary of Site Plans and Status

This site is the new K-8 Stephen Gaynor School and Ballet Hispanico building. It is 12 stories and approximately 37,000 square feet. Steven Gaynor sold the townhouse at 22 West 74 Street (one of 18 mansions built by the Clark family, developers of the Dakota) for $9.1 million in 2006.

The new home of the Stephen Gaynor School and Ballet Hispanico is the last of the West Side Urban Renewal Area (WSURA) sites to be developed. St. Gregory’s Church sold the site to Ballet Hispanico (an original WSURA tenant) and the Stephan Gaynor School, a school for gifted students who don’t meet their academic potential and who may be learning disabled. The school opened in 2006. Council Member Gale A. Brewer supported Ballet Hispanico with city capital funds.
