Project Background

In May 2011, the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), on behalf of the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to redevelop the lot of land at East 73rd and East 74th Street along the FDR Drive. The RFP explicitly required that the site be redeveloped to create or expand a health care, educational, or scientific research facility.

CUNY/Hunter and Memorial Sloan-Kettering responded to the RFP with a joint proposal to develop two buildings that would include an outpatient cancer care facility for Memorial Sloan-Kettering and a Science and Health Professions Building for Hunter College.

In August 2012, Mayor Bloomberg announced that Memorial Sloan-Kettering and CUNY/Hunter College had been designated to develop the site.
