NEW YORK | CUNY-Memorial Sloan Kettering | 100m+ | 26 fl | U/C


http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/2013...w/popup/273752


==========================================================

Memorial Sloan-Kettering, CUNY Healthy Expansion on Upper East Side

Quote:
Two new contemporary healthcare centers will soon come to the hospital corridor along the East Side of Manhattan. Mayor Bloomberg, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, CUNY announced plans to build a state-of-the-art cancer center and nursing school in a new million-square-foot building on the Upper East Side. The prominent waterfront location at 525 East 73rd Street will further highlight the city’s position at the forefront of the medical research. The project will create more than 3,200 construction jobs and nearly 830 permanent jobs, and is expected to be completed in 2017.

These two new facilities will allow both Memorial Sloan Kettering and CUNY/Hunter College to move into labs and healthcare units appropriate for the cutting-edge work and care that they both do—and they will look cool doing it.

In a deal with the city’s Economic Development Corporation, the institutions will pay $215 million for a 66,000-square-foot city-owned site at 525 East 73rd Street, a move the mayor lauded as a prime public-private partnership.

Memorial Sloan-Kettering, the world’s oldest and largest private institution devoted to cancer care, which will construct a 750,000-square-foot state of the art cancer treatment facility, will take up most of the space. The aim of the project is to prompt the development of innovative outpatient treatment programs.

CUNY Hunter College will take up the balance of the space with a new Science and Health Professions building that cover some 336,000-square-foot. The project upgrades Hunter’s science and nursing facilities and enables its faculty, researchers and students to work in a location close to its main campus on the Upper East Side. It will also provide efficient and state-of-the-art science and nursing facilities.

Attack of the NIMBYS!

Tensions Run High at UES Medical Complex Public Forum


DNAinfo

Quote:
The joint project from CUNY Hunter and Memorial Sloan-Kettering that would put an enormous nursing school/medical center between 73rd and 74th Streets next to the FDR Drive has already drawn the ire of some Upper East Side residents. The two adjacent buildings (designed by architects ennead and Perkins Eastman), which would total over one million square feet—six times greater than what the lot is currently zoned for—have already been compared to a "a fat lady trying to squeeze into a too-tight girdle" and a "morbidly obese person" on a plane by angry Upper East Side residents. Last night, at a Community Board 8 Land Use Committee meeting, those residents (who have now organized into a group calling themselves Residents for Reasonable Development) as well as a large group offering support for the project showed up in droves. When the dust settled, 43 residents had offered public testimony (25 supporting the project, 17 opposing, and one who just wanted to talk about 3-D printers), and the signs hanging on the front of the CB8 table reading "Civility" and "Brevity is a Virtue" were long forgotten.

The meeting began with a series of presentations from Hunter and Memorial Sloan-Kettering higher ups on the need for state-of-the-art facilities for cancer research, and a few of the people who supported the project were currently undergoing cancer treatment. Some Residents for Reasonable Development took this as an affront, claiming that their position was being twisted to make them seem un-empathetic. "We're opposed to this project; we're not opposed to curing cancer," one resident said. The reasons most often cited for opposing the project included increased traffic and congestion as well as the dangerous precedent it would set to allow developers to build huge projects while buying off the community with a donation to a public park.

The public park donation was also a point of serious contention. CUNY-MSK had previously won support from the community by introducing a zoning text amendment that would pledge funds for new open space in the area, promising the funds to Andrew Haswell Green Park, if their various height, setback, rear yard equivalent, lot coverage, and parking waivers were approved. However, some members of the community noted that Andrew Haswell Green Park was not actually mentioned by name in the amendments, meaning that the rug could be pulled out from under them at a later date.

Hopefully the approve it. I think the city would be foolish to reject a medical education and research facility.

These NIMBYs are crazy. Not only would this be a massive job generator, it would provide a service that these very people may need one day.

I hope it gets built as proposed.

Tis The Season For Baby NIMBY Kissing...

Politicians join locals to oppose UES cancer center


Healthcare? Or preserved views? Your vote matters

Quote:
Upper East Siders are organizing in the wake of plans for a 750,000-square-foot cancer center in their coveted neighborhood. On Friday, area activists and politicians met to protest the City Planning Commission’s approval of the 23-story Memorial Sloan Kettering facility, calling the plan a “vanity project.”

As The Real Deal previously reported, many Upper East Side residents have opposed the plan from the start — with one source quipping that the massive project is “the equivalent of trying to squeeze a fat lady into a too small girdle.”

But on Friday, politicians, such as Manhattan Borough President hopeful Gale Brewer and City Council District 5 candidate Ed Hartzog, came to show their opposition, indicating that the struggle is gaining momentum, according to DNAinfo.

“Sloan-Kettering wants everything near their 68th Street campus,” Terry Grace, a UES resident at the protest told DNAinfo. “In my opinion, it’s vanity.”

Mayor Michael Bloomberg awarded Sloan Kettering and CUNY the bid to develop the site — currently a garage on York Avenue – in September 2012. In August the City Planning Commission approved a “bulk variance” for the proposal allowing it to go before a City Council vote, the final step before the project can break ground.

Ironically, the people that call this project vain are willing to sacrifice a healthcare facility to preserve their views and community. what could be more vain than that?

New UES school and medical complex OK'd

Quote:
Hunter College and Memorial Sloan-Kettering can move forward with its planned 1.15 million-square-foot medical complex on the Upper East Side. Jointly they paid the city roughly $226 million for the land where the towers will be built.

The city's borough board, a collection of City Council members and community board chairs, OK'd a new, 1.15 million-square-foot medical complex on the Upper East Side on Thursday that will provide new facilities for both Hunter College and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

The approval cleared the way for land owned by the city along the FDR Drive on the entire block between East 73rd and 74th streets to be sold to the partnership, made up of the college and the hospital, for about $226 million.

Hunter College and Memorial Sloan-Kettering will build adjacent towers on the site, with the college erecting a roughly 400,000-square-foot structure for its nursing and physical therapy schools and science research labs. Memorial Sloan-Kettering will take the eastern side of the site, where it will build a roughly 750,000-square-foot, 23-story outpatient treatment center that will open up space at its main campus for outpatient services.

The project has been approved. These selfish, vile NIMBYs who care more for their views than the health of others are desperately trying to stop it but they won't succeed.
