Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building at 4037 Broadway in Washington Heights, Manhattan. Located at the intersection of Broadway and West 170th Street, the corner lot is a short walk to the south for the 168th Street subway station, serviced by the A and C trains and the 168th Street-Washington Heights station, serviced by the 1 train. New York-Presbyterian is listed as the owner behind the applications.
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.
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.
