Thurgood Marshall Academy

Sciame was the Construction Manager responsible for the construction and renovation of Gruzen Samton’s innovative design for this 750- student middle school and high school facility. Which involved the construction of a six-story building shell. The latter was built in 1924 and was the original address of the legendary Harlem jazz club, Small’s Paradise, as well as home to The Interstate Tattler newspaper (1925-1932). Consequently, the structure’s significance for the Harlem community is immeasurable. The project team worked closely with the New York City Board of Education and with residents of Harlem, addressing the concerns and adhering to the design guidelines and requirements of both groups.

The Perelman Performing Arts Center will provide versatile layouts across three theater spaces, which can be combined to offer a range of seating configurations. Additionally, the venue will feature a lobby level complete with a bar, café, terrace, and stage.
