St. Vincent’s Catholic Medical Centers has made it official — the behemoth Catholic hospital network has filed its application with the Landmarks Preservation Commission requesting permission to demolish two of Its Seventh Avenue buildings, including the massive O’Toole Building, and to make alterations to a third.

The filing moves the project into the next phase, which will include a public hearing before the commission. The hospital, which recently emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and its development partner, Rudin Management, are required to get permission from the commission on major changes like this because it’s located in the heart of the Greenwich Village Historic District.

According to the documents, delivered to the commission on Dec. 31, the eight existing buildings at the Main Hospital Site at 1 Seventh Avenue are slated for demolition. A new residential development designed by FxFowle PC would rise in Their Place.

The demolition of the O’Toole Building at 20 Seventh Avenue would make way for a new hospital building designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners.

The Triangle Site, located at 76 Greenwich Avenue, would undergo modifications also designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners.
