Permits have been filed for a six-story medical facility at 505 West 168th Street, in Washington Heights, Manhattan.

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.
Today, YIMBY has the first close-up of 90 Morton Street’s ongoing transformation, in the West Village.
