Starting next month, you will be able to visit a doctor at NYU Langone’s new outpatient medical center at Essex Crossing. More than a dozen specialists will be on hand July 2 for the opening of the Joan H. and Preston Robert Tisch Center. An ambulatory care center, including four operating rooms, is scheduled to open in the fall.
The 55,000 square foot facility is located at 171 Delancey St., at Clinton St. When it’s fully operational, the center will span three floors and include 30 exam rooms. There will be a foot and ankle care center and a women’s sports medicine center.
“We’re thrilled to bring this new, comprehensive network of clinical services to the Lower East Side, one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods, but one with many pressing needs for access to the highest quality medical care,” said Andrew Rubin, vice president for clinical affairs and ambulatory care at NYU Langone Health. “We always look at where our patients live and work, and this location provides a convenient alternative not only in the immediate area, but also for those located in the Financial District and Williamsburg.”
Upon opening, specialists will be available for primary care, cardiology, orthopedics, sports medicine, podiatry and addiction medicine. Starting in August, spine surgery and rheumatology services will be added. NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation will begin offering services in the fall. When fully functional, the center will also feature other specialties, including gynecology, otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) and plastic surgery. There will be on-site diagnostic services like lab testing, X-ray imaging, and cardiology and vascular studies.

171 Delancey St.
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.

Delancey Street Associates, the consortium building Essex Crossing, is announcing this morning that it has signed a 15-year lease with NYU Langone Medical Center to bring a large health care facility to the Lower East Side.
Back in August, NYU went public with news of “a generous multimillion dollar gift from Joan H. Tisch to establish the new Joan H. and Preston Robert Tisch Center” within the Essex Crossing mixed-use development. But at that point, a lease had not been locked down.
Now the deal is done. The facility will be located in a building now under construction on Site 6 of the project in the former Seward Park urban renewal site. The center, at 175 Delancey St. (Attorney Street) will take 55,000 sq. ft. on three floors of the building. According to a press release, the facility will “provide a comprehensive array of services, including urgent care and multi-specialty physician practices.”
In a statement, NYU Langone Senior Vice President Vicki Match Suna said, “We are excited to be a part of this project and are looking forward to bringing a world class ambulatory care center to this rapidly expanding neighborhood.” S. Andrew Katz of the Prusik Group (an Essex Crossing partner), said the developers have known that access to quality medical care is important to the community and are pleased to have teamed up with NYU to establish the center in the first phase of development.
The building, one of four now being built as part of Essex Crossing, will also include 100 rental apartments for low-income seniors, as well as a senior center and a 2500 sq. ft. coffee shop, both run by Grand Street Settlement. There will also be a 24,000 sq. ft. educational facility (the operator has not yet been announced).
Essex Crossing is being built by BFC Partners, L+M Development Partners, and Taconic Investment Partners. The overall development on nine parcels includes 1,000 apartments, office space, a 14-screen Regal Cinemas theater, a Splitsville Luxury Lanes bowling alley, a Planet Fitness gym, a public park and a new Essex Street Market.
The Joan H. and Preston Robert Tisch Center is expected to open in late 2018.
