New York University Medical Clinical Cancer Care Center

The 13-level, 85,000 sq. ft. Clinical Cancer Center of NYU Medical Center is located at 160 East 34th Street (between Lexington and Third Avenues). The building, which opened in mid-2004, serves as “home base” for the Medical Center’s cancer patients by bringing all cancer specialists on staff together under one roof.

The Clinical Cancer Center offers specialized clinical care in a patient-focused treatment setting, and its team-oriented approach makes possible a timely diagnosis and immediate referral to appropriate treatment specialist. A Radiation Treatment Center onsite makes the center the only NCI-designated cancer center in New York City to offer radiation therapy in a freestanding outpatient facility.

The building was designed with a full-height aluminum and glass curtain wall with a distinctive covered marquee for curbside drop-off. The interior finishes incorporate natural earth tones to increase wellness and healing for patients.

VDA provided services through shop drawing review for three (3) overhead geared traction passenger elevators serving 12 stops, and one (1) hospital-sized service elevator serving 14 stops.
