Memorial Sloan Kettering and CUNY Build Cancer Care and Health Science Facility

Published 5-30-2017

Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) and the City University of New York (CUNY) are developing a joint facility in New York City. MSK’s 23-story outpatient tower, the 750,000-gsf David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care, will feature advanced surgical suites, radiation therapy rooms, and dedicated space for clinical trials. CUNY’s six-story, 400,000-gsf (336,000-asf) Hunter College Science and Health Professions Building will provide sophisticated simulation training suites, teaching and research labs, a technology-rich library, faculty offices, and a vivarium. The 1,150,000-gsf project was designed by Ennead  Architects working in collaboration with Perkins Eastman. LEED Silver sustainable design certification will be sought for the facility, which will feature a façade composed of terra cotta panels and glass infill to reduce solar heat gain. Occupancy is expected in 2019.
