ON THE HORIZON
We anticipate an increase in the adaptive re-use of buildings in all sectors. The pandemic has significantly altered the retail and commercial office leasing market and these buildings provide an excellent opportunity for reinvention as multifamily housing and outpatient-focused healthcare spaces. Our work in Behavioral Health and treatment facilities for substance abuse is also increasing dramatically.
To address the problem of an existing building that was too small to accommodate the hospital’s growing outpatient cancer program, Posen Architects designed a seven-story; 38,000 SF addition to the Dickstein Cancer Treatment Center. The new building is connected to the existing 35,000 SF structure, which was totally renovated – including the addition of a new arrival atrium and a metal panel façade covering the original brick – to provide expanded reception, patient navigators, over thirty infusion chairs, spa and retail amenities, meeting rooms and administrative offices. The new building provides a satellite compounding pharmacy and multiple floors of physician offices.
