New Life for St. Teresa’s Building Complex


The long-empty St. Teresa’s school complex in Crown Heights won’t continue to be unused for long: At last week’s Community Board 8 meeting, plans were revealed to renovate the three buildings at St. Johns and Classon for a training academy complex for NY State Court officers. The design process for renovating the buildings, which have been boarded up for 20 years, is under way, and construction is supposed to begin in the fall. When work wraps in the summer of 2013, classrooms, dorms and a training facility will be in place. (Don’t worry, no shooting practice allowed!) At the meeting there was some concern voiced over parking, but it was pointed out there’s an existing garage on St. Johns Place. Overall the plan was praised for bringing life to the old buildings.
