This 8-story building at 220 East 20th Street in the Gramercy Park section of Midtown East was erected in 1920 as part of the Cabrini Medical Center complex that closed in 2008 and was converted in 2016 to an 8-unit residential condominium project as part of the four-building Gramercy Square complex by The Chetrit Group, which is headed by Joseph Chetrit, Clipper Equity, which is headed by David Bitricer, and the Reed Property Group.

It is known as The Boutique at Gramercy Square.

The 223-unit Gramercy Square complex occupies 1.4 acres in the middle of the block bounded by Third and Second avenues and 19th and 20th Streets.

It includes three other buildings: the 10-story Tower at 215 East 19th Street that contains 130 condo apartments, the 9-story Prewar at Gramercy Square at 225 East 20th Street that contains 48 condo apartments, and the new Modern at 7-story 230 East 30th Street that contains 37 condos.

Woods Bagot is the architect for the new building and the three conversions.

The complex has almost half an acre of landscaped grounds with a solarium and the courtyard has been designed by M. Paul Friedberg & Partners.

The hospital complex was founded in 1892 in Greenwich Village by Frances Xavier Cabrini, who was subsequently canonized, and was known as Columbus Hospital.  It relocated to 20th Street in 1895.

A hospital building on the northwest corner of the complex’s site that contain its emergency room was removed and replaced by gardens.
