NYU Langone Plans Its Fifth Regional Cancer Clinic at 5718 Second Avenue, Sunset Park

NYU Langone Medical Center is planning an outpatient cancer clinic at 5718 Second Avenue, located between 57th and 58th streets in Sunset Park. The new facility will be a center for chemotherapy and radiation therapies, Crain’s reported. The existing two-story, 28,700-square-foot commercial building at the site will be gut-renovated to accommodate the clinic. The building will receive a new façade, as well, NYU Langone revealed to YIMBY, although the final design remains a work in progress. Building permits to renovate the structure have not been applied for at this time. The property was acquired in the spring of 2016 for $12.1 million.

Four-Story, Three-Unit Mixed-Use Building Coming to 716 57th Street, Sunset Park

A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a four-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 716 57th Street, on the southern end of Sunset Park. The project will measure 5,856 square feet and rise 42 feet to its roof. There will be 1,080 square feet of medical office space on the ground floor, followed one apartment per floor on the second through fourth floors. The apartments should average 975 square feet apiece, which means either condominiums or rentals could be in the works. Luis C. Wong’s Flushing-based engineering firm is the applicant of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,003-square-foot lot is vacant.
