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.
