Eastman Cooke Builds Two Endovascular Centers in East Harlem
NYC-based construction firm converts 2 stores at East River Plaza, 505 E. 116th Street; former Sleepy’s becomes Harlem Endovascular Center, nearby retail space turned into full-service New York Endovascular & Amputation Prevention Clinic
NEW YORK (October 12, 2021) – Eastman Cooke & Associates (ECA), a Manhattan-based, mid-sized construction company, is completing two medical clinics for the American Endovascular & Amputation Prevention Group at East River Plaza, 505 East 116th Street. The two medical units comprise Harlem Endovascular Center, a 4,200-square-foot clinic in a former Sleepy’s store, and New York Endovascular & Amputation Prevention Center, a 5,000-square-foot full-service surgical center.
“Building two clinics in a shopping center frequented by the local community is a great use for erstwhile retail space that had been vacant a long time,” says Peter Morandi, Chief Executive Officer, LEED AP, Eastman Cooke & Associates. “The surrounding neighborhoods will greatly benefit from the services provided in these clinics, whether for wellness visits or comprehensive surgical procedures. In recent years, a substantial portion of our projects have focused on extensive adaptive reuse and conversions of retail, office and warehouse spaces into vibrant medical centers.”
For both clinics, Eastman Cooke built reception areas, examination rooms, and offices. Among the infrastructure upgrades were new electrical and plumbing systems, and individually operated HVAC systems. For the New York Endovascular & Amputation Prevention Center, Eastman Cooke constructed multiple operating suites. In addition, the firm was responsible for the interior buildouts, storage, millwork, and painting.
