The building will be two-story in height, with a floor plate of 49,330 square feet on the first floor, for a total size of 73,722 square feet. The structure will contain a total of 32 classrooms, including early childhood rooms, kindergarten rooms, an art room and two music rooms. The school is proposed to be constructed behind (to the south of) the existing Benninghoven Elementary building. The district intends to use the existing school until the new facility is ready for occupancy. Once this occurs, the existing school will be demolished.

The project received site plan approval from the Planning Commission on December 7, 2015. A building permit has now been issued for the project, and exterior walls of the structure are nearing completion. The District has requested temporary occupancy of the building to begin installing furniture and fixtures.
