$738M Coney Island Hospital renovation advances

Brooklyn, N.Y.-based NYC Health + Hospitals-Coney Island's $738 million renovation plan will move forward after receiving a key approval from the state, according to The Real Deal.

The hospital plans to build an 11-story, 350,000-square-foot tower and a critical services tower. It also will renovate its main hospital building, install a flood wall around the campus and demolish an older building that was damaged during Superstorm Sandy.

The project will mainly be funded by a $1.7 billion grant NYC Health + Hospitals received in 2014 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after Superstorm Sandy caused significant flood damage.

New York Public Health and Planning Council's establishment and project review committee advanced NYC Health + Hospital's approval to the full council. If approved by the full council, the hospital expects all repairs and expansions to be completed in 2023.
