Mount Sinai Medical Center Tower

CIVITAS led a coalition of neighbors and advocacy groups to urge denial of permits and to raise public awareness regarding Mount Sinai Medical Center’s proposed research lab and 540-foot residential tower (equivalent to 54 stories) to loom over Central Park. Constructed as joined buildings with shared mechanical systems, the mid-block tower would be the tallest building north of 60th Street. The Board of Standards and Appeals approved the variances in 2008, clearing the way for the tower construction.
