NYU Medical Center filed plans for its proposed medical facility at the former site of the Long Island College Hospital at 339 Hicks Street in Cobble Hill, according to a permit application filed with the city Friday.

Fortis Property Group bought the site last fall for $240 million after a two-year process that involved multiple bidders and law suits. Fortis is partnering with NYU Medical Center and Lutheran Medical Center, which will manage a freestanding emergency room and provide ancillary medical services. NYU is investing roughly $180 million. As part of the deal, NYU promised to build and operate a new medical facility that would include a 24/7 freestanding emergency department with at least 12 observational beds. Perkins Eastman is designing the new facility.

The facility will span roughly 160,000 square feet and stand five stories tall, according to the newest plans.

An NYU spokesperson said the new medical center will also include an on-site clinical laboratory and a surgical suite for outpatient procedures.

Fortis is also developing a new condo building at the location, but permits for that project haven’t been filed.

Jonathan Landau-led Fortis is looking to redevelop the rest of the site into a residential project that will come with open space, a retail and a facility for a public school. Those plans will have to go through the city’s public review process. Members of the Cobble Hill Association as well as Community Board 6 have told the Brooklyn Eagle that those plans are “dramatically out of scale with the adjacent Cobble Hill District.”
