Plans to build the state’s first free-standing cancer hospital - the centerpiece in a sweeping, $750 million project that will transform the Somerset Street health care corridor - has been approved by the city.

The Planning Board voted 7-0 Tuesday night to allow Cancer Pavilion Redevelopment Associates LLC, an affiliate of DEVCO, to proceed with its plan to construct the 11-story, 519,000 square foot Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey Cancer Pavilion.

The Cancer Pavilion will house inpatient and outpatient care, research facilities and administrative space.

The Cancer Pavilion application received preliminary site plan approval at November’s meeting, where the condition of getting approval for another part of the project – the adjacent parking garage – was placed upon it.
