“Knit into the urban fabric, it creates a “place”, and heart of campus, vibrant, active and open to the community … the LEED Platinum building is a steward of the environment, reviving a once-active contaminated brownfield into a beacon of modern healthcare education.”Brian Newman. Senior Associate Vice Chancellor, UCSF Real Estate & Vice President, UCSF Health
Former Vice President, Campus Development, Oregon Health & Science University
Also part of the overall building project is OHSU’s new Skourtes Tower, housing the school of dentistry clinical training, clinics, and research spaces. The two buildings together comprise 650,000 GSF of new construction in a 12-story building.
The building is conceived as an innovative model of interdisciplinary health sciences education, research and education, engaging students, faculty and pedestrians through a concept of “health science on display”. It is LEED Platinum certified. CO Architects: Design Architect; SERA Architecture: Executive Architect.
