Have any renderings of the new building been released? I now live in NYC and work in the architecture business, but attended Woodfill from kindergarten to 4th grade back in the early 80's, and I still keep up with what's happening back home. Naturally, I'm a bit curious about what the new Woodfill will look like.
They have filed the plans with the state for approval. I assume that once approved they can be released. Interestingly enough there is a document from 2007 on the KY Dept of Education website (http://www.education.ky.gov/users/spalmer/December%202007%20Ft%20Thomas%20Fac%20Pln.pdf) that lists the costs at just under $7m so that is quite a change to $12m - perhaps it was the extra cost for the geothermal and other green building components that pushed the price up. I also wonder if that helped it better fit within the context of the stimulus plan.
The school plans were released in October/November and were shown at the November Woodfill PTO meeting. The plans are on display in the school, also.
I was able to find a couple renderings on the school district's website. The quality of the renderings isn't great, but they give a decent overall picture. Looks like the bulk of the new construction will face Woodfill Avenue, at least in the initial phases.I note from the link above that Johnson School is also slated to be rebuilt, and that Moyer will be undergoing significant renovations.
Thanks David. As a note the link on the website that you are referring to is: http://www.fortthomas.kyschools.us/content_page2.aspx?cid=122
