Mount Sinai Brooklyn Heights Medical Group Signs 15-Year Lease At One Pierrepont Plaza

Mount Sinai Brooklyn Heights Medical Group has signed a lease for 75,060 square feet at One Pierrepont Plaza. The private medical practice will take the 17th and 18th floors in the 19-story tower on Clinton Street (300 Cadman Plaza) in Brooklyn Heights. After renovations, the tenant is scheduled to move in January 2013.

The space was previously used as a data center by investment bank Goldman Sachs, according to The New York Observer. The medical group will use the space for an ambulatory care office, urgent care, cardiology, general surgery, neurology and plastic surgery, among other medical practices.


The two partners—Mount Sinai Medical Center and WESTMED Practice Partners (a Westchester-based physician-owned private medical practice)—have been looking to move into the Brooklyn market.

    That really, really sucks. Hospitals and medical practices are never good for residential hoods other than single practitioner offices. Never, ever. I’d rather travel for service any day. Also, this says they will have amblatory care, which often means ‘Emergency Room’. Who wants people from all over hanging around there. This is a crap idea. I guarantee you trouble will come from this. People are going to get sent there for drug tests, the City could end up using them for methadone. You’ll see.

    No more to say on the topic. Argue if you will.

    I tried to read as much as possible about the facility and cannot find “emergency room” anywhere. So, I don’t think that you have anything to worry about as far as that goes.

    As far as people showing up in our neighborhood for drug tests, there’s already a Quest Diagnostics on Pierrepont between Clinton and Cadman Plaza and a United Healthcare lab above the Chipotle. Both these facilities do pretty much nothing but bloodwork and that includes a lot of drug tests from what I’ve happened to notice.

    The Mt. Sinai facility is much more akin to their “Faculty Practice” building on E. 98th Street next to Central Park — a place for people who want to see a doctor associated with Mt. Sinai but who aren’t sick enough to need to spend a night in the hospital.

    Finally, just so you know, the “ambulatory” in “ambulatory care” has nothing to do with ambulances. Quite the opposite. Ambulatory, in this use, means “the ability to walk in on your own two feet.”

    Personally, I view this as a huge plus for our neighborhood. No more schlepping to Manhattan for top notch medical care and an increase on home prices as the dozens of doctors who work there consider buying in the neighborhood to avoid a long commute.

    Meanwhile, Memorial Sloan Kettering is opening a center for those undergoing chemotherapy and other procedures, several blocks away on Atlantic Avenue. They already have satellite facilities in Westchester, New Jersey, and elsewhere in the Metropolitan area.

    Regarding the new medical offices.
    There is an enormous difference between an multispecialty hospital affiliated group practice and a ER/urgicare center for a large hospital. I am constantly terrified that I will end up getting stitiches at LICH or stuck on the brooklyn bridge trying to get to Manhattan urgently. There will be primary care, obgyn, pediatrics, multispecialty, imaging and office based procedures. It seems that some people are just worried that people from “Downtown” might cross the plaza for a doctors appointment. This project is going to be so much more upscale than the current doctors offices on joralamen. Not to worry.

    @ Andrew Porter, MSKCC’s chemotherapy outpatient treatment center on Atlantic Avenue has been in existence for more than a year. I’ve had blood drawn there to save me a trip to the Upper East Side.

    yoohoo, I took the A train from High Street, changed for the E and came up right next to the MSKCC center at 53rd and Third, so it was very convenient. Ironically, MSKCC is so successful in treating cancer that they need to constantly expand their facilities.

    A year ago they bought the old Cabrini Hospital, a square block in Manhattan; expect to see that reopen soon as a branch.
