Developer Proposing As-Of-Right 260,000 Square-Foot Dormitory At LICH Site, Cobble Hill

Fortis Property Group is proposing to build an as-of-right 260,000 square-foot student dormitory on the corner of Henry and Amity Streets, in Cobble Hill, according to Politico. The developer acquired the Long Island College Hospital complex from SUNY for $240 million, and is currently seeking a rezoning for the property, which would include senior housing, park space, and a public school. Fortis has also drafted plans for an as-of-right 35-story residential tower in addition to the dormitory, which would have hundreds of beds. Fortis’ plans for a five-story medical facility and eight townhouses have already been filed with the DOB.

Fortis Property Group will spend the next year or two haggling with the city and the Cobble Hill community over its plan to build towers as tall as 40 stories on the former Long Island College Hospital campus. But in the meantime, the developer is moving forward with smaller pieces of the project, by filing plans for a new crop of townhouses at 88 Amity Street, between Henry and Hicks Streets.
