December 2021 \ BUILDING DIALOGUE \ 77 core. Like the building pedestrian entrances, there are parking entrances on both South Pearl Street and South Pennsylvania Street, each interconnected through the parking structure. There are just under 300 parking spac- es, over 40% of which are below grade, minimizing the visual impact of parking. Patients can be dropped off or picked up under cover, and there is a separate, discreet post-surgery patient pickup area with a separate eleva- tor away from the public lobby area. Doctors and staff have access to secured parking, and retail and restaurant visitors have direct access to grade. The architecture features a tri-part design both hori- zontally and vertically. The upper levels of the building float over a skin of glass, and the building is articulated with three distinct façade elements resulting in a build- ing of pleasing scale. The building is clad in energy-effi- cient glass, metal panels and a prefabricated panelized stucco skin system. The primary entrance on South Penn- sylvania Street and a feature stair on South Pearl Street are clad in a bronze-colored metal panel system. The building is heavily insulated to provide thermally com- fortable spaces. Interiors are contemporary and feature Class A mate- rials. Internal access is provided from the lobby directly into the street-facing retail for convenient access. The lobby is internal to the building, yet flooded with natural light to make it bright and welcoming. Office floor plates feature 9-foot-high ceilings with punchedwindows openings, curtainwall and ribbon-win- dow glazing systems. Vertical circulation includes a pair of geared-traction elevators with a third, separate eleva- tor for patient use. All elevators access all floors within the building from the below-grade parking levels to the top floor surgical center. Mechanical systems for the of- fice building use state-of-the-art DX cooling systems for maximum energy efficiency, and differing types of sys- tems are provided for different uses within the building to provide functional flexibility. Electrical systems and lighting include state-of-the-art LED lighting systems to complement the uses and architecture.\\ The feature stair on South Pearl Street is clad in a bronze-colored metal panel system.
