Newly-released renderings of a 3,079-seat high school that will be built in Woodside give prospective students a first look at the massive building planned for Northern Boulevard.

The School Construction Authority (SCA) released the renderings for the facility at 51-30 Northern Blvd. to the Queens Post today.

The six-story building will house three high school programs, including a District 75 program for students with specialized needs, and serve Queens students in grades nine through twelve.

The school, known as H.S. 472, is set to open in September 2023 — however progress has been slowed down due to the coronavirus pandemic, a SCA spokesperson said.

The building will be 304,617 square feet when complete with the main entrance along Northern Boulevard. It will have a variety of classrooms, special education classrooms, music rooms, art rooms, science labs, exercise rooms as well as an auditorium, gymnasium, library and administrative offices.

The high school will also have a 26,911-square-foot outdoor play area.

Vomit-inducing brutalist architecture that reminds one of of the utterly useless collectivist curriculum that will be taught within its walls.

For the second time in four months, FDNY fire inspectors averted a potential catastrophe in East Elmhurst after finding stockpiles of illegally stored propane tanks in the residential neighborhood.

Fire inspectors from the Special Investigation Unit received a complaint of illegal occupancy at a home just south of LaGuardia Airport at 23-57 89th St. They discovered 68 propane cylinders, which they seized along with five food trucks and a box truck parked on the property last week.
