PATIENT TOWER Construction Complete on $480M Lundquist Tower at Torrance Memorial Construction is complete on Torrance Memorial's new $480-million Melanie and Richard Lundquist Tower. The replacement hospital serves as the new front door of the medical center, and the centerpiece of the campus. Located on an existing medical center site in Torrance, California, the tower replaces Torrance Memorial's original facility built in 1971, which no longer meets state seismic regulations. The new tower utilizes a buckling restraint braced-frame structure, and meets California's strict seismic requirements for both the structure, as well as its contents. The tower features the South Bay's fi rst hybrid operating room. The basement in the seven-level patient tower houses a central utility plant and a tunnel connection leading to the existing hospital facility. The tower's design addresses the comfort of visitors by incorporating family friendly lounges and overnight spaces. Expansive windows are located throughout the facility, taking advantage of natural daylight and views. Outdoor gardens between the new and existing facility provide a serene and healing space for patients, visitors and staf .
