NYU Langone Medical Center has a pair of expansion projects underway on both ends of its East Side campus, and, today, with the help of photographer Tectonic, YIMBY has updates on both of them.
First up is the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Pavilion at 424 East 34th Street. When YIMBY last reported on its construction in February, it was 12-stories-tall. Now, it has reached its 21-story total height. Building permits indicate that, when complete, the structure will have risen 359 feet. They also say it will encompass 694,310 square feet of commercial space, though NYU Langone’s website lists 830,000 square feet. Either way, Ennead Architects is responsible for the design.
Together, the Kimmel Pavilion and Tisch Hospital facilities will ultimately offer a seamless patient experience, with the buildings directly connected on procedural and imaging floors, and on the lobby level concourse,” says the Langone website. “The two facilities will also share central sterilization and other support services.”
“The Kimmel Pavilion will offer single-bed inpatient rooms, which greatly enhances infection control, allows for a more efficient workflow for staff in each room, and can better accommodate a patient’s family and visitors,” the site adds.
Completion is expected in 2018.
Moving down the river, there is the Science Building at 435 East 30th Street. When YIMBY last checked in on it in February, the 16-story building was just about topped out. Now, it has topped out and actually received most of its façade.
The new building permit lists its square footage at 275,450, but the Langone website says it will encompass 365,000 square feet. Though the permit says it is a 16-story building, those floors are apparently not short, given the indicated 303-foot height. Like the Kimmel Pavilion, Ennead Architects is responsible for the design.
According to Langone, the biomedical research-focused Science Building will include “10 floors of laboratory space dedicated to research, including wet laboratory space, core facilities, a new vivarium, conference spaces, and public amenities in an expansive, integrated environment.”
“The building’s design will help strategically integrate research facilities and services so that investigators, students, faculty, and clinicians can work more efficiently and collaboratively. Its laboratory floors are designed to be open, efficient, flexible, and easily adaptable with cutting-edge, shared equipment to accommodate advances in research over time,” the site adds.
It is striving for LEED Gold certification and completion is likely next year.
