Design Challenge: Challenges included fitting the building onto the existing campus. The TriHealth Kenwood medical office building includes a four-story, 114,000 SF medical office tower along with a two-story, 240-car parking garage. The exterior is composed of precast concrete with brick, metal panels, and glass and aluminum curtain wall. The tower is connected to the adjacent two-story garage at the lower level with a combination of 15,000 SF of medical office space and 36-car parking spaces. This building replaces two existing buildings and is situated on the site to take advantage of the existing topography and visibility from I-71.
Design Outcome: We used a critical two-phase demolition process that allowed TriHealth to maintain operations and traffic flow, positioning the building for high visibility along I-71 and a TIF funded garage. The design intent was to provide a unique style of architecture that would be timeless, yet iconic and highly visible from the highway both day and night. MSP and Oswald Company teamed with the Developer to prepare the concept design, take it through complete design development, process a major zoning PUD modification, and complete the design on a fast-paced schedule to deliver the project within the tenant’s timeline.
