Thread: Weill Cornell Medical College York Ambulatory Care Building - by Polshek Partnership

  1. #1

    Default Weill Cornell Medical College York Ambulatory Care Building - by Polshek Partnership

    Cornell University
    Joan and Sanford I. Weill Medical College Ambulatory Care Facility


    New York, New York
    255,000 square feet
    2006

    The new Ambulatory Care Building on York Avenue and 70th Street in New York City will constitute the first step in what is envisioned as a state-of-the-art expansion of their campus for this prestigious medical school. In addition to housing advanced clinical facilities for departments such as Dermatology, Hypertension, ENT, IVF and Cardiology, the 12-story, 255,000 gross square foot structure will provide a central medical conference center and physician training in its Clinical Skills and Teaching Center. The ground floor lobby will be served by a secure and convenient vehicle drop-off to facilitate patient arrival and departure. From the lobby, escalators will take visitors up to the Patient Welcome and Resource Center. Conceived as a gem-like glass icon, the white ceramic fritted glass curtain wall is cut into long vertical facets. These gently sloped vertical surfaces reflect the gothic motif of the original New York Hospital campus across York Avenue, while its luminous wall suggests a new direction for healthcare: precise, elegant and unexpectedly refined.

    Not bad. I suspect Gehry's Interactive Corps' building on West St. will look something like this.

    BTW, what's that tall, glassy, almost translucent building behind this one depicted in this rendering?

    The cornell ambulatory center is one of the few times a building as ever looked and felt exactly as portrayed in the renderings if not better.

    I like it too. It looks fantastic in person.

    The nearby "checkerboard" building is this one:

    In the renderings at the above link, the other building looks good. I'll have to see in person I guess.

    I guessed they liked the first tower so they hired Polshek again.

    That's a beautiful tower. Where is the proposed address? I used to live in that area.

    Not exactly sure yet. I think its one of these.

    Within the next six weeks, a 13-story, 330,000-square-foot ambulatory care and medical education building will open at 1305 York Ave. at 70th Street. The building will serve as the focus for patient care and education for the Weil Cornell Medical College. The medical college has also announced plans to construct a $650 million, 350,000-square-foot biomedical research building on 69th Street and York Avenue. In addition, construction is scheduled to begin this year on a 19-story mixed-use tower on the block front on First Avenue between 71st and 72nd streets that will house employees and medical offices.

    The red square site shows the location for that building as "Virginia"

    That's clearly wrong. The surrounding buildings in the rendering are in NY. Also, NY Hosp. on York is visible in the background.

    So Who's Building Right Now? Schools and Scientists

    May 26, 2010, by Sara



    Over on East 69th Street, the site has already been dug out for Weill Cornell Medical College's new medical research center. But the official groundbreaking is today, which means it's time to take a look at a rendering of the Polshek Partnership-designed project. (This is your cue to look at the image on the right.) When the project's done, the 480,000-square-foot, 18-story building will be Weill Cornell's center for research on cancer, heart disease, global health, and lots of other big topics. "It seems like a rather large project for the neighborhood," writes a tipster. But it's hard to complain about new development that also promises groundbreaking cancer research, and our tipster admits he does like the look of the place. Nor does it seem out of line with the rest of the medical center's buildings in the neighborhood.

    Weill Cornell isn't the only scientific research institution working on a new building from a big-ticket architect. Up at 133rd Street and St. Nicholas Terrace, there are plans for a new City University of New York science research center from One Jackson Square creators Kohn Pedersen Fox. This project consists of two 200,000-square-foot buildings, constructed on a rock outcropping to muffle any vibrations that might mess with lab equipment. Nifty, and we can kinda see the One Jax resemblance.
