P.S. 375Q will be constructed in Long Island City as part of the Hunters Point South project.

Plans are underway to start construction on a new elementary school in Long Island City.

Permits were filed with the Department of Buildings on Jan. 4 for a four-story,  75,093-square-foot building at 1-35 57th Ave.

P.S. 375Q will be built near the Hunters Point South affordable housing complex and is a part of the project’s second phase of construction.

Officials first announced that the school would be built in February 2016 at the cost of $60 million. Parents in the neighborhood have been asking for additional schools to cater the influx of families moving in.

Mayor Bill de Blasio in 2016 allocated $225 million for the construction of three new schools in the area and one school in neighboring Woodside.

According to the SCA, the school will accommodate 612 students and feature an art classroom, a music classroom, a science resource classroom, a gymatorium, a library, guidance and medical suites, a cafeteria and an outdoor playground.

The second phase of construction at Hunters Point South will also include almost 1,200 units, 800 of which will be affordable. The two residential towers will stand 55 and 44 stories, respectively.
