New York City hospital says it will close if it can’t build tower
New York Times, June 4, 2008
During a hearing before the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission, St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan representatives said the facility will have to close if it cannot build a medical tower in Greenwich Village. The hospital presented several consultants and healthcare experts that supported its case for a $1.6 billion development plan, which also involves demolishing several structures. Commissioners had objected to the hospital's original plan to demolish nine buildings in the Greenwich Village Historic District to permit the construction of a 329-foot-tall medical building. The commissioners did not rule on the hospital's application, more hearings are planned.
