The Hospital for Special Surgery is planning to move into the Durst Organization’s newest rental building on the Far West Side.

The hospital is taking 65,000 square feet at Frank 57 West, one of Durst’s three residential buildings on a block bounded by West 57th and 58th streets and 11th and 12th avenues, the New York Post reported. The 68-unit building, named for Helena Durst’s son, also has retail and community space. The hospital, which has a main location at East 70th Street, will function as an outpatient clinic at the Durst building.

Durst purchased a 99-year lease on the land — sometimes referred to as a “superblock” — in 1999, and eventually secured a rezoning that paved the way for residential construction. The Helena’s 568 apartments opened in 2006. The Bjarke Ingels’-designed tetrahedron, Via 57,  has 709 units and opened last year. Greek/Mediterranean restaurant Ousia just opened a 7,000-square-foot outpost in Via, and a 30,000-square-foot, eight-screen Landmarks Theatre is expected to open soon. [NYP]Kathryn Brenzel
