The Greenwich Lane
NEW YORK CITY—Northwell Health has signed a new lease totaling 22,000 square feet and will establish a new community healthcare facility at The Greenwich Lane, a 199-unit condominium situated at the former site of St. Vincent’s Hospital in the West Village.
The Greenwich Lane ownership, the Rudin Family and joint venture partner Eyal Ofer’s Global Holdings announced the lease deal with the Great Neck, NY-based health services firm. Northwell Health will take space on the second and third floor of 7 Seventh Ave. The facility, scheduled to open in 2018, will offer primary specialty care services, including cardiology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, and ear, nose and throat care. Greenwich Lane is a collection of five buildings and five townhouses centered on a 14,000 square-foot courtyard.
Michael Rudin, SVP of Rudin Management Co. says that Northwell Health’s new community facility is situated near the new Lenox Health Greenwich Village, which houses Manhattan’s first freestanding emergency department, and is located adjacent to the 14th Street 1/2/3 subway station.
“We worked diligently with the entire Northwell team to create this state-of-the-art community facility to benefit the public,” Rudin states. “Northwell will be a great addition to the building and neighborhood, and we are proud to help expand on the services they already provide to the community.”
Northwell Health was represented in house by Candida Canizio in lease negotiations, while Rudin represented ownership in-house along with Rudin Management’s Tom Keating, SVP-director of commercial leasing, and Kevin Daly VP of commercial leasing.
The new community facility at the Greenwich Lane follows several years of major redevelopment efforts at the site. In 2011, the Rudin and Ofer families donated the land and the 150,000 square-foot O’Toole Building, formerly of St. Vincent’s Hospital, to Northwell Health for the creation of a standalone emergency facility. The project also includes a 16,000-square-foot community park on the west side of Seventh Avenue between Greenwich Avenue and 12th Street that includes the New York City AIDS Memorial.
The $150-million renovation of the O’Toole Building into the Lenox Health Greenwich Village was awarded the Lucy G. Moses award for excellence in restoration and adaptive reuse by the New York Landmarks Conservancy this past May.
The Greenwich Village practice is part of Northwell Health’s outpatient network that includes more than 550 facilities throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Long Island.
