Columbia’s Medical Center gets face lift with new buildings

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/05/...new-buildings/


Quote:
Two new structures on the Columbia Medical Center campus — a glass tower overlooking the George Washington Bridge and a new building for the nursing school — are to transform the L-shaped cluster of buildings that line the Hudson River.
The center’s future Medical and Graduate Education building, a 100,000-square-foot, $77 million glass tower, is already underway. And work on the school’s new nursing school, a 70,000-square-foot, $40 million structure that will rise on what is now a faculty parking lot on the west side of Audubon Avenue between West 167th and 168th streets, will begin later this year.
“The goal is to make it as state-of-the-art as it was in the 1920s, when the campus was created as a model for medical education,” Dean Lee Goldman told the Wall Street Journal. “Medical education has shifted from the old days, when it was focused on lectures, to lots of simulation.”
The school’s main simulation center will be located one level beneath the lobby level, while the upper floors will house lecture halls, smaller simulation classrooms and an anatomy lab for performing autopsies, the Journal reported.
The nursing school, which has long occupied a dormitory building a half-block away at 617 West 168th Street, will span three stories in its new locale and be about 65 percent larger than the current space, as The Real Deal previously reported. [WSJ] — Julie Strickland

It is an academic building for classrooms and student areas for the CU medical students. It is not a patient care area. Columbia has been building a number of innovative buildings recently.

Columbia's Newest Building Shows Off Its 'Cascading' Stairs



Quote:
The newest addition to Columbia University is also the most fun to watch rise. The new home for Columbia University Medical Center's graduate program is a crazy zig-zagging tower with a "study cascade" designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The cascading floors and interesting angles are already very visible in the tower, which Field Condition recently photographed. The 14-story tower is now topped out, and pieces of the interior, like the prefabricated stairs that will fill those cascading ramps, are arriving at the site. The facade's curtain wall should be arriving soon, and the building will be complete sometime next year.

Columbia University Medical Center Update


http://fieldcondition.com/blog/2014/11/14/cumc

Quote:
WASHINGTON HEIGHTS—The brand new Columbia University Medical Center continues its steady climb upwards, and the taller it gets, the more absolutely crazy it looks. Field Condition has some new shots of the currently facade-less building and its "study cascade" design from Diller Scofidio + Renfro.
