Building proposal by Manhattan hospital is rejected

New York Times, May 7, 2008
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has rejected a proposal by St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan for a $1.6 billion development within the Greenwich Village Historic District. The plan would have demolished nine existing buildings to permit the construction of a 329-foot-tall hospital and a 265-foot-tall luxury condominium. Hospital officials testified that a new building was essential to maintain modern healthcare for more than a million New York City residents who use St. Vincent's.
