We are very excited to bring this project to the communities of Northern Manhattan. Still in its early stages, this new building on Broadway between West 169th and 170th streets will help us continue to meet critically important hospital and community needs. The project will include an Early Childhood and Family Hub, employee housing, short-stay accommodations for patients and their families, and commercial retail on the ground floor level.
The project will be 13 stories total, in keeping with surrounding buildings. In addition to the Hub, the building will provide:
- Approximately 8,000 square feet of retail space for rent, with a preference for local small tenants, fresh food options and some restaurant space.
- Approximately 131 critically needed one-bedroom and studio housing units for our employees.
- A short-stay hospital guest facility that can accommodate 90 patients and their families.
The Early Childhood and Family Hub
The Early Childhood and Family Hub seeks to optimize the well-being of our community’s children, from birth through age five, as well as their parents and caregivers. The Hub concept is the culmination of two years of collaborative planning between the NewYork-Presbyterian team and local community partners — including community based organizations committed to early childhood and family enrichment.
The Hub will house a state-of-the-art resource center and will help fulfill the needs identified by our community partners including a teaching kitchen, children’s library, workshop meeting space and play area. Additionally, the Hub will provide literacy and school readiness programs, nutrition resources, support groups for new parents and caregivers, breast-feeding support, Women, Infants and Children (WIC) programming, and other services.
As we move forward, our model will be to continue to work with residents and community organizations to develop a common agenda to improve early childhood development.
Our partners in architecture and design are H3 and Arquitectonica.
As planning for the project progresses, NewYork-Presbyterian will continue to keep the community updated. Please feel free to send any comments, questions or concerns to the NYP Office of Government and Community Affairs at [email protected].
