One of the stipulations of the sale of Long Island College Hospital's main campus to Fortis Property Group was that the community would still get medical services in the area (although what services Fortis partner NYU Langone will be returning to the Cobble Hill community are not what they're used to.) The building that will house those services will be at the corner of Atlantic and Hicks streets at 70 Atlantic Avenue (formerly 339 Hicks Street). Now, YIMBY has a look at the design of the building.
The Perkins Eastman-designed facility will occupy five floors and stand 89-feet-tall, spanning 160,000 square feet. It will replace a 12-story-tall LICH building already on the site. The building will contain an emergency department, cancer center, diagnostic imaging center, and other services. Dr. Jon Berall, who opposed the sale, called this "totally inadequate."
