Back in June, YIMBY reported on filings to convert the eight-story Polhemus Building at 350 Henry Street, in Cobble Hill, into 17 residential units. Since the building is landmarked, approval from the LPC is required, and according to Brooklyn Daily Eagle, plans have received the green light. The units will likely be condos, averaging a spacious 2,520 square feet apiece in the 43,187 square-foot structure. Fortis Property Group is developing, and BKSK Architects is designing.
Last week, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new building coming to 70 Atlantic Avenue, in Cobble Hill, at a site formerly known as 339 Hicks Street. It currently houses a building for Long Island College Hospital, but that will soon be demolished to make way for an NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Clinic, which we can now reveal.
Now that a judge has finalized the sale of Cobble Hill’s Long Island College Hospital to Fortis Property Group, the developer has wasted no time in filing plans for a new emergency center. New building applications surfaced on Friday for a new five-story medical building at 70 Atlantic Avenue, on the corner of Hicks Street.
Fortis Property Group is moving forward with their plans to convert Long Island College Hospital’s Cobble Hill buildings to residential, and now they’ve filed an application to renovate the landmarked Polhemus Building at 350 Henry Street into apartments.
Fortis Property Group, the owner of the Long Island College Hospital complex at 339 Hicks Street, in Cobble Hill, has proposed redeveloping the properties into 820 residential units, retail, and a medical treatment center, per Curbed. The 1 million square-foot-plus project includes 16-, 20-, 30- and 40-story towers, as well as seven new townhouses, and would require ULURP approval. A large amount of park space is also included, and FXFOWLE is designing.
