Two charter schools are proposing to renovate a vacant industrial building in the West Loop area of the North Loop for a joint campus. Prodeo Academy serves 300 students in grades K–8 and Metro Schools serves 250 students in grades 5–12, though the two plan on growing their student population in the new site. Once renovated, the building would consist of 60 classrooms, two lunchrooms and a shared gym, according to plans approved via consent at the City Planning Commission’s May 22 meeting. The schools are planning to convert a small industrial building into a creative learning center and an adjacent yard into a play area. The site is located about a block west of Metro Transit’s Fred T. Heywood Office Building and Garage.
