The New York Blood Center announced plans Tuesday for a major expansion of its Upper East Side headquarters, calling for its existing East 67th Street building to be replaced with a glassy, 16-story tower.

The new facility will serve as a state-of-the art life sciences hub that will help further the Blood Center's mission, including its prominent role in the city's response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to officials from the nonprofit.

The organization plans to demolish its current three-story brick building at 310 East 67th St., which was built in 1930, and which the Blood Center says has physical limitations that prevent it from expanding key research programs.
Zoning approval will be needed for the Blood Center to move forward with the 600,000-square-foot campus, which is currently in the early stages of the rezoning process, according to a spokesperson for the Blood Center and Longfellow Real Estate Partners, the project's developer.

They hope to break ground in 2022, once the land use review process is complete, and aim to wrap up construction by 2026.
NEW YORK heals.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
