About Spence

Spence 412


The Spence School is building an athletic and educational facility—Spence 412—at 412 East 90th Street. In collaboration with Rogers Partners Architects, Spence has combined imagination and purpose in what will be a living commitment to athletics, the arts and ecology at Spence. The facility will include a regulation-size gymnasium for volleyball and basketball; nine squash courts, including an exhibition court; a multipurpose room for the performing arts; as well an ecology center and outdoor education space.

Phase II

November 2018 

Beginning November 2018, the project transitions into the excavation and foundation phases, which we anticipate to continue through the winter. This work will  involve both noise and vibration from the drilling activity as well as impact on parking and traffic flow. Some sections of parking lanes will be restricted on both the north and south sides of 90th Street, as well as the pedestrian path around the construction site. The hours of work are on weekdays from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. with occasional Saturday work.
