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.
