Project Story

The Center for Outpatient Health is a 322,000 square foot medical office building that combines a mix of private and public clinics, physician offices, and corporate offices in an academic setting. Responding to the programmatic needs for clinic and teaching space, the owner and design team analyzed a number of space scenarios and concluded that a 12-story building would maximize the potential of this important urban site and appropriately express the BJC “brand.”
