NYC high-rise sues Hospital for Special Surgery

A high-rise condominium complex on the Upper East Side is suing one of its neighboring buildings belonging to New York City-based Hospital for Special Surgery, according to Page Six.

Hospital for Special Surgery only uses the building for office space, according to the article.

The condominium alleges the hospital building's air-conditioning equipment ruined its interior courtyard and spa deck.

According to court documents, the condo claims the air-conditioning condensers "[spew] condensate and hot air exhaust ... killing plants on the spa deck and rendering portions of it useless."

The lawsuit also alleges the "excessive noise [from the hospital building] ... prevents unit owners from opening their windows, going out onto their terraces, using the condo spa deck, sleeping through the night and otherwise enjoying their apartments as places of relative peace and quiet."

The high-rise — which is home to numerous celebrity chefs, including Eric Ripert, executive chef at New York City-based Le Bernardin and Masatoshi Sugio, owner of New York City-based Sushi of Gari — is looking to force the hospital building to stop using its air-conditioning equipment.
