Permits have been filed for a six-story medical facility at 505 West 168th Street, in Washington Heights, Manhattan. The site is two blocks away from the 168th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 1, A, and C trains. Marino Torres MD is listed as the owner. Mr. Torres MD is a board certified pediatrics professional working at New York Presbyterian. NYP owns a multi-block hospital structure right next to the subway station. The permit does not specify a connection with the hospital, but it seems inevitable.

The 60-foot tall structure will yield 13,860 square feet of space, with 9,980 square feet dedicated to community facility use. A pediatric center will be located in the cellar, along with a mechanical room and storage area. Medical offices will occupy the six floors above ground.

Insite Design Studio will be responsible for the architecture.

The site witnessed a similar proposal in 2014, with Torres again listed as the owner. A different firm was to design what would have been a seven-story building with five residential apartments, and 4,800 square feet of medical space.

Demolition permits have been filed, and the estimated completion date has not been announced.
