The City Planning Commission approved a luxury condominium development on the former site of St. Vincent’s Hospital, WNYC reported.
Developer Rudin Management requested the green light to build 450 condominiums and 11,000 square feet of retail space at the St. Vincent’s site at Seventh Avenue and Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich Village. The local community board and several groups opposed the project, saying it would be out of character with the neighborhood.
The City Council will vote on the matter some time in the next 60 days, WNYC said. [WNYC]
