Abandoned Hell’s Kitchen Hospital Converting Into Livable Apartments

The mention of an extended stay in a hospital can sour the greatest of moods but the Cherit Group, a family-run batch of investors and developers is trying to change that. According to DNAInfo.com, the Cherit Group has recently made public its plans to convert a vacant hospital building in Hell’s Kitchen into livable apartments.

The building formally known as the St. Vincent’s Midtown hospital, located on 415 West 51st in Midtown West, closed its doors more than four years ago after accruing millions of dollars of debt.  Since then, the building has been abandoned and sits idly from any activity other than periodic flooding in the basement and reported incidents of trespassing on the premise. One resident in the area reported that the desolate building has become an eyesore “in the middle of a bustling neighborhood.” While full-on constructions are not expected until early October, early signs of the project were reported last Friday as electrical workers were seen entering and exiting the building. Representatives from the Cherit Group were unavailable for comments on the project at the time. Along with the newly announced project in Hell’s Kitchen, the Cherit Group recently also bought the Hotel Chelsea, a famous designated New York City landmark since 1966.
