Hospitals rapidly expanding across the city

With billions of Federal dollars pouring into the health care industry, hospitals across the city and its outer boroughs have experienced unprecedented growth in 2012, leading to a jump in leasing activity, according to the New York Observer. Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Mount Sinai Hospital, Montefiore Hospital and Inventa Health were a few among more than a dozen hospitals and medical centers to expand their footprints this year, and brokers and analysts expect the trend to continue.

“The health care industry is the 800-pound gorilla in the house,” Michael Berne, managing director of Lee & Associates’ senior housing group. “It’s a key topic for real estate folks in New York City, as traditional owners start to realize the potential in health care.”

In September, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and the City University of New York made a $215 million deal with the city for the construction of two new science and medical facilities at 525 East 73rd Street on the Upper East Side; Sloan-Kettering made plans to construct a 750,000-square-foot cancer care facility; and CUNY Hunter College arranged to build a 336,000-square-foot Science and Health Professions building.

In October, Montefiore Medical signed a 16-year lease with Simone Development for a new 280,000-square-foot building at Hutchinson Metro Center and in April, Sinai Hospital—Mount Sinai Brooklyn Heights Medical Group—leased the 17th and 18th floors at 1 Pierrepont Plaza in Downtown Brooklyn, for a total of 75,060 square feet.
