New York Methodist Hospital officials agreed to scale back its expansion plans in a court settlement with neighborhood group Preserve Park Slope.

As part of the settlement, the hospital will reduce the proposed height of the eight-story, U-shaped outpatient center to seven stories, and move a building entrance to 6th Street from Eighth Avenue. The nonprofit, which led the fight against the project, agreed not to oppose the process of securing new approvals for the updated plans.

“We are pleased that we have reached this agreement, which will help to address the community’s concerns regarding the height of the new building, the impact of increased traffic especially on pedestrian safety, and the effect of the new building on the neighborhood character,” Andrea Stewart, a Preserve Park Slope member. “We will continue to work with New York Methodist Hospital to ensure that community input is incorporated into the site’s development.”

Plans call for a Center for Community Health with a cancer center, urgent-care center, surgery center and a 300-car garage.

Preserve Park Slope filed a lawsuit in July to overturn a decision by the city Board of Standards and Appeals to approve plans for a new ambulatory care facility, The Real Deal reported. [Brooklyn Paper]Mark Maurer
