17-Story New York-Presbyterian Hospital Expansion Tops Out At 445 East 68th Street, Upper East Side

In January, YIMBY brought you construction shots of New York-Presbyterian Hospital’s new 17-story, 733,500-square-foot David H. Koch Center at 445 East 68th Street, on the Upper East Side. At the time, the structure was roughly 14 stories up. Now, DNAinfo reports the project has topped out. The new building also has an address at 1283-1299 York Avenue, and it will serve as an multi-specialist outpatient center and a maternity ward. The maternity ward is being dubbed the Alexandra & Steven Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns, and will span floors 12 through 17. Amenities will include dining rooms, conference centers, staff lounges, and a 128-car parking garage. The building, designed by HOK, is expected to open in 2018.

Developers File For 18-Story, 63-Unit Mixed-Use Building At 147 East 86th Street, Upper East Side

This past summer, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 18-story, 63-unit mixed-use building planned at 147 East 86th Street (a.k.a 1289 Lexington Avenue), on the Upper East Side. Now its developers – Ceruzzi Properties, Kuafu Properties, and Stillman Development – have filed applications with the Department of Buildings. The new building will span 229,751 square feet in total, and the cellar through the second floors will contain 26,718 square feet of commercial space. The NY Sports Club is expected to occupy two floors in the building. The third floor will contain residential amenity space, featuring lounge spaces, a children’s playroom, and a gym. The condominium units, ranging from two- to five-bedrooms and averaging 2,800 square feet apiece, will also begin on the third floor. Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum (HOK) is designing and completion is expected in 2018. Two existing low-rise commercial buildings must first be demolished. [The Real Deal]

17-Story, 733,500 Square-Foot New York-Presbyterian Hospital Expansion Rises At 445 East 68th Street, Upper East Side

In the beginning of 2014, YIMBY brought you news of the imminent demolition of the 12-story residential buildings at 445 East 68th Street (a.k.a. 1283-1299 York Avenue), on the Upper East Side, to make-way for New York-Presbyterian Hospital’s expansion. The initial filings for the new building have since been amended and detail a 17-story, 733,500 square-foot building, 551,691 square feet of which will be considered active medical space. Thanks to photos by Tectonic, we can see the structure is now 11 stories above the street level and rising. Dubbed the David H. Koch Center, HOK (Hellmuth, Obata & Kassabaum) is behind the design of the building. Completion is expected in 2017 or 2018.

Revealed: 1289 Lexington Avenue, 21-Story Upper East Side Condo Tower Designed by HOK

A few days ago, partial renderings of the new mixed-use development coming to 147-151 East 86th Street surfaced. The site abuts one of the most prominent corners of the Upper East Side in terms of pedestrian traffic, and fittingly, the existing structure will soon meet the wrecking ball for a new 21-story building with an address of 1289 Lexington Avenue, which YIMBY can now reveal.
