Curbed reports that Fortis Property Group, purchasers of the Long Island College Hospital site, yesterday evening revealed their plans for development of the site at a meeting of the Cobble Hill Association. The plan calls for four residential towers, of 40, 30, 20, and 16 stories. There will also be a medical center, townhouses, retail spaces, a small park, and “potential for a public school.” The proposed residential development would produce approximately 600 market rate and 200 affordable units. Implementation of the plan is contingent upon approval under the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure; failing approval, Fortis has a back-up “as of right” plan that includes a 44 story structure. The image above, by FXFOWLE Architects, is of the preferred proposal.
