Size 48,000 sq ft
In an ongoing partnership with Bronx-based Urban Health Plan, scalar Architecture conducted a series of feasibility studies for sites located near existing UHP facilities and adjacent to an elevated subway line. The selected proposal was developed as an eight-storey, 48,000 sq. ft., LEED certified building comprising UHP offices, ambulatory healthcare facilities and a system of automated underground parking. Because of the building’s adjacency to an elevated subway line and the need for sound mitigation, as well as a desire to increase energy efficiency, the building utilizes a ventilated double façade of interior window wall and exterior curtain wall.
