Lenox Hill Hospital owners Northwell Health think the Upper East Side site’s existing 10 buildings are just too old and too small.

They are expected to announce a $2 billion renovation package, that will include the creation of a 41-story, 200 unit residential building at the Park Avenue corner of the site, according to the Wall Street Journal. It is not yet known what developer will be tapped to work on the new residential building.

The current hospital site stretches an entire city block between Park and Lexington Avenue, at 76th to 77th streets. Some of the hospital’s facilities date back to the 1800s.

The planned renovation includes a 516 foot hospital room tower, new physician practice offices, and the potential demolition of three townhouses on the north side of 77th to create one new building.

Northwell Health will need to receive city and community approval for the project. City Council member Keith Powers, who represents the area, told the Journal that public consultation would be essential.

“It’s incredibly important that there is a lot of public participation in the plan and concerns for those who live in or around the hospital are addressed through the land-use process,” Powers said.

Northwell are currently partnering with University Financing Foundation to develop six buildings on the Upper East Side that a new outpatient care center, a cancer center, an ambulatory surgery center and medical offices.They received a $246 million loan for the project in August.
