West Haven approves Washington School demolition, new design

The Planning & Zoning Commission approved the demolition and new construction of Washington School, the next step forward in bringing the 114-year-old school into the future. In a presentation by representatives from architectural firm Antinozzi Associates and engineering firm Stentec, commissioners reviewed plans for the two-story, 49,000-square-foot building that will accommodate roughly 438 students between pre-K and fourth grade and more than 70 staff members. Officials said that, although construction can be noisy, construction officials can reserve some of the noisiest functions for later than 7 a.m. Yates said the estimated $44.5 million construction project may begin once bids go out in the late summer and may be completed by March 2025. During construction, Washington students will attend school at the presently-vacant Molloy School.
