Project Description
The Conservatory Lab Charter School (Conservatory Lab) has secured the purchase rights and plans to construct a new school building at 395-409 Columbia Road in Uphams Corner in Dorchester. This site would become the permanent location for its Elementary and Upper School (approximately 275 students in grades 3-8). The current location of the Upper School is at 2120 Dorchester Avenue in leased space. Conservatory Lab currently owns and operates its Primary School (grades K-2) at 131-133 Hancock Street in Dorchester, less than a half mile from the proposed Upper School site. The Proposed Project will include demolition of existing structures and the construction of an approximately 41,000 square-foot, three-story school building. The project schedule targets construction completion in time for school occupancy in August of 2019.
