Stony Brook University breaks ground for new medical building by PCPA

STONY BROOK, NY (Nov. 13, 2013) — Stony Brook University broke ground on a major medical campus addition designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. The first part of the $423 million expansion project to begin construction is the new Medical and Research Translation (MART) Building, scheduled to be completed in 2016. A ceremony attended by Governor Andrew Cuomo, state and university dignitaries, and hundreds of physicians, administrators and staff, took place today.

“With this groundbreaking, we took an important step forward in Stony Brook University’s goal to develop the MART, a translational research center that will advance both medical innovation and clinical practice,” said University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D.

Designed to enable, foster and encourage scientists and physicians to work side by side to investigate and discover new clinical treatments and invent new medical technology, the MART will advance research and clinical care at Stony Brook Medicine. The 245,000-square-foot, eight-story building will be located adjacent to the Hospital and Health Sciences Center on the Medicine campus. As part of its core mission, the MART will be devoted to cancer research and care, including the new home for the Stony Brook University Cancer Center.

MART will be the University’s new headquarters for cancer research, advanced medical imaging, and cancer care. In addition to MART, the project designed by PCPA includes a new bed tower. Combined with the recladding of the original medical center designed by Bertrand Goldberg, the buildings will create a new visual identity for the medical campus. The 20-story bed tower will house a new state-of-the-art inpatient care and Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. Between the two buildings is a modern 300-seat auditorium for live and distance education and community outreach programs.
