ALEXANDRIA, VA. - The West End school got a step closer to reality on Thursday night, when the Planning Commission voted to support changing the use of a vacant office building into a school.

The first four floors of the building at 1701 N. Beauregard Street will be used for the new 650-seat elementary school, while the top two floors will be used as office space potentially by ACPS or the City. Outdoor play space including a basketball court will be added on the roof of the adjacent parking garage at 1705 N. Beauregard Street.

During the hearing, the Planning Commission commended the project and said they were impressed by the degree of community support that it has received. They approved the Development Special Use Permit, which establishes the concept for the site and changes the use to a school. The request will now go before City Council to get final approval on Sept. 16.
