If you have walked by the intersection of Delancey and Clinton streets in the past few days, you probably noticed signage for NYU Langone’s new medical facility at Essex Crossing. It’s not accepting patients just yet, but you can expect a partial opening in the next few weeks.
The Joan H. and Preston Robert Tisch Center is taking 55,000 square feet at 171 Delancey St. The building also includes senior housing and a senior center run by Grand Street Settlement. A spokesperson for NYU Langone tells us today that physician practices will open during the summer. Ambulatory surgery services won’t be available until the fall.
Public filings by NYU Langone indicate there will be four operating rooms in the Lower East Side center, as well as a physical therapy facility. The entrance to the medical center is on Delancey Street.
By the end of this year, the first phase of the Essex Crossing project will be complete. It includes a new home for the Essex Street Market, a large shopping pavilion called the Market Line, a 14-screen movie theater, a Trader Joe’s & Target store, as well as mixed-income housing.
