The Dalton School isn’t the only tony Upper East Side academy with expansion plans.

St. David’s School, an elite all-boys K-8 institution on East 89th Street next to the Guggenheim Museum, wants to gut-renovate one of its landmark buildings to provide space for athletics, performing arts and advanced science courses.

The $60 million plan, which includes a one-story rooftop addition, has already received approval from the city’s Landmark Preservation Commission but must now get the go-ahead for its proposed zoning change before it can proceed.

“It’s been a more than 40-year dream of the school to be able to house these kinds of large spaces on its 89th Street campus,” said St. David's headmaster David O’Halloran.

The nearly $40,000-per-year school — which counts John F. Kennedy Jr. and Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s son as alumni — currently occupies three townhouses on East 89th Street between Fifth and Madison avenues.
