16 Medical Construction & Design | SEPTEMBER /OCTOBER 2017 | MCDM AG.COM Lenox Health Greenwich Village honored for outstanding preservation Formerly the O'Toole/Maritime Union Building, Lenox Health Greenwich Village in New York has brought a new model of community-based healthcare to Manhattan's West Village. Lenox Health Greenwich Village was honored with the 2017 Regina Kellerman Award by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation for its out- standing restoration and revitalization of the former O'Toole/Maritime Union Building. The facility was recognized along with St. Vincent's Triangle Park and the new AIDS Memorial for provid- ing much needed refl ection, peace and services to the Greenwich Village com- munity. Alex Hellinger, executive director of Lenox Health Greenwich Village, accept- ed the award at the GVSHP's 27th Annual Village Awards Ceremony and acknowl- edged the meticulous work and care that went into transforming the landmark structure into a contemporary, cutting- edge health facility while preserving the building's original nautical-inspired aesthetic. "We wanted to honor the architect's vision and retain the space's cultural value as a landmark status building but also bring the modern era to this histori- cal place," said Hellinger. The Maritime Union Building was designed by architect Albert Ledner and built in 1964. The delicate restoration of the structure ensured that the building's unique design would be preserved. The façade was restored to its original appear- ance, as the structure still boasts a ship- like exterior complemented by porthole- shaped windows, a roof that resembles a boat's sail and a glass foundation that evokes an image of a ship fl oating on water. The interior has also been refur- bished with nautical-inspired decorative elements, including round light fi xtures and a soothing blue color scheme. With a full range of medical ser- vices and 24-hour emergency care, Lenox Health Greenwich Village, part of Northwell Health, has brought a new model of community-based healthcare to Manhattan's West Village neighborhood. Northwell Health invested over $150 million to renovate the building, begin- ning with the opening of Manhattan's fi rst freestanding emergency center in 2014. The medical facility also houses a new imaging center and later this year will open an ambulatory surgery center, physician offi ces, as well as a community conference space. The Lenox Health Greenwich Village restoration and revitalization project team included Turner and Perkins Eastman. This is the second honor this year for Lenox Health Greenwich Village for ex- cellence in restoration. In May, the New York Landmarks Conservancy also recog- nized the medical center for excellence in restoration and adaptive use of a his- torical New York City building.
