NYU Langone Medical Center is the latest hospital to throw its hat into the ring with a proposal for the embattled Long Island College Hospital site in Cobble Hill.

The hospital has unveiled plans to transform the property at 339 Hicks Street into a 60,000-square-foot medical center with standalone facilities including a cancer center, ambulatory surgery center and emergency room.

NYU’s partner would be developer Fortis Property Group, which previously sought to build condominiums and an urgent care facility there, DNAinfo reported. The plan was set aside after protests from Cobble Hill residents.

Brooklyn Hospital Center, meanwhile, has a proposal that is still on the table. It wants to build 1,000 mixed-income apartments — 350 of which would be affordable housing – as well as two urgent care centers and two clinics, as previously reported. [DNAinfo]Mark Maurer
