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.
