New York Methodist files 500K sf hospital expansion plan

October 18, 2013 12:55PM

Despite community consternation, New York Methodist Hospital is moving ahead with its expansion in Park Slope and has filed plans with the Board of Standards and Appeals for its new outpatient services center.

The hospital at 506 6th Street filed its plans yesterday, which call for the center to have nearly 500,000 square feet of space and rise to a height of 152 feet.

The center and its 327 employees will be able to accommodate 1,548 daily visitors and 260 daily vehicle trips, Curbed reported.

Architects had reworked the design of the center, slated to rise between Seventh and Eighth avenues and 5th and 6th streets, in Brooklyn, after locals gave the project a thumbs-down at a community board meeting in July. [Curbed]  – Hiten Samtani
