On Manhattan's Upper East Side, Lendlease has broken ground on a new outpatient complex for Northwell Health.

Northwell Medical Pavilion - 77th Street, planned along Third Avenue between East 76th and 77th streets, will stand 15 stories in height and feature 200,000 square feet of space dedicated to oncology treatment, cardiac care, neuroscience programming, wellness services, chronic disease management, and social services. Plans call for separate floors for clinical space and physician offices.

In addition to oncology treatment, the center will provide cardiac care, neuroscience programming, imaging and lab testing, as well as holistic wellness services, acute and chronic disease management, social work services and more. The pavilion will feature state-of-the-art technology paired with a patient-centric design including separate floors for clinical space and physician/clinician offices.

A rendering of the pavilion, which spans a full city block, depicts a structure clad in metal and glass. The project is expected to achieve WELL certification, and is intended to comply with New York Local Law 97, which caps carbon emissions caps for large buildings in the city starting in 2024.

“We’re incredibly proud to contribute our healthcare construction team’s expertise to this significant project, which is complex not only due to its size and location in the heart of a busy Upper East Side neighborhood, but also because of the scope of patient services it will offer and the variety of systems and technologies those services require,” said Steven Sommer, Executive General Manager and President of New York Construction at Lendlease. “We’ve been working closely with the project team throughout preconstruction to expedite delivery of what will be a best-in-class facility for this city.”

Demolition and site clearance is expected to begin soon, while foundation and excavation work will start in the Spring. Completion is expected in 2025.
