New York Methodist Hospital to present revised plans

In response to local opposition, the New York Methodist Hospital is set to propose a revised design for its expanded outpatient center tonight to Community Board 6.

The new renderings show slightly shrunken parts of the three-story upper façade of the eight-story building, located at 506 6th Street in Park Slope. Residents have argued that the project does not fit with the character neighborhood and will increase traffic. The hospital has made around 20 changes to the original plan, based on community input over the past six months, hospital spokesperson Lyn Hill has said. 

The meeting tonight will be held at John Jay Educational Campus at 237 Seventh Avenue at 6 p.m., DNAinfo reported. The city’s Board of Standards and Appeals will ultimately have the final say in whether Methodist can build the structure as it wants. [DNAinfo] and [Curbed]Mark Maurer
