Rafael Viñoly Architects Joins NYC Builds Bio+ Panel On The Icahn School Of Medicine At Mount Sinai’s New Pioneering Project For Life Sciences

On May 6, Rafael Viñoly Architects’ Jim Herr will join a NYC Builds Bio+ panel discussion on how The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s expansion plan is ground-breaking for New York City’s life sciences industry.

Mount Sinai recently signed a long-term lease for 165,000 square feet at 787 11th Avenue, a mixed-use conversion of an iconic Art Deco industrial building, developed by The Georgetown Company and designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects. The leading research institution’s new space will span across three floors and house a comprehensive imaging center and a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center, as well as facilities for biotech research that will include genome sequencing, gene and cell editing and other pursuits.

The combined clinical and research use planned for the new facility illustrates an important trend in life sciences, while the lease transaction represents one of the largest between an academic medical center and a private building owner in NYC and demonstrates the value it can provide to many industries in the City as it emerges from the pandemic.
