New York-based life sciences developer Taconic Partners this week announced plans to build a 200K SF lab project on the 94th Street site in Manhattan where baseball great Lou Gehrig was born.

In an homage to the Yankees first baseman and Hall of Famer, Taconic and its partners, Nuveen Real Estate and Flatiron Equities, said the facility will be named Iron Horse Labs—a reference to the nickname fans gave Gehrig when he set the original record for playing in consecutive games.
