Italian private school drops $55M on new NYC HQ

Viva l’Italia!

La Scuola d’Italia, a 38-year-old independent, bi-lingual Pre-K through 12 private school based in Carnegie Hill, has dropped $55 million for a brand new headquarters in Midtown West, the Daily News has learned.

The new facility, a 14-story, 102,000-square-foot building at 432 W. 58th St., was acquired from Mount Sinai Medical Systems, which was using it as a medical research facility.

La Scuola plans to completely renovate the building, installing a brand new glass facade and atrium, 28 classrooms, a gym, a media center, a library, specialized labs, peformance studios, a garden and a dining facility, before moving in next year.

“This unique, new, capacious, fully modern facility will prove to be among the most important Italian educational and cultural institutions outside of Italy, easily the one with the largest body of students studying Italian in the US,” said Carlo Mantica, COO of the school.
