This is the long-delayed development of the area around the subway station between Northtown and Goldwater Hospital that commenced in 2002. Part of this area was occupied by a nurses housing building from 1938 to sometime in the mid 1990s (I remember seeing the abandoned building on my first trip to Roosevelt Island in 1991). The new buildings are going to include housing for staff of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell Medical College as well as market-rate condominiums. The nine buildings are scheduled to be completed in 2010.
