PROJECT OVERVIEW

 

Welcome to the construction web site for WVR development (a Rudin / Global Holdings Development) at the former St. Vincent's Hospital site in Greenwich Village. The purpose of this web site is to provide community members and the public the most up-to-date information on the project and its construction status. After securing all its necessary approvals in March 2012, the transformation of this site is underway and by 2015, the project will realize a number of significant public benefits including:

• A state-of-the-art health facility including an emergency department at the historic O'Toole site to be run by the North Shore
   - Long Island Jewish Health System.
• A new 563-seat elementary school at the Foundling Hospital at 17th Street and 6th Avenue.
• Thousands of new jobs and a boost to the local small businesses.
• A series of beautifully designed and Landmarks Preservation Commission-approved buildings, 5 of which that are being preserved
   and adaptively reused, that reduce bulk and enhance the Greenwich Village Historic District.
• The creation of the 16,000 sq ft St. Vincent's hospital neighborhood park, designed in collaboration with community input.
   Design elements will be included that will honor the rich history of St. Vincent's 160 years of service, in addition, 1,600 sq. ft.
   will be dedicated for an AIDS memorial.
• This project is seeking to become the first LEED Neighborhood Development project in New York City.

We look forward to working closely to make sure that this project is a success and something we can all be proud of for generations.
