As the largest medical teaching institution in the SUNY system. SUNY Downstate is an urban campus challenged by many issues. As a long-term strategic plan for the redevelopment of the campus, the master plan identifies and addresses several key areas of need over three phases of development, including: medical and academic practice areas, clinical lab facilities, administrative offices, conference center, medical retail users, residential apartments for graduate/resident students and structured parking. In addition, Kimmerle team entered into a development agreement through its affiliate, Kimmerle Downstate, LLC, to act as developer of record for all three phases of development. The campus expansion plan address more than 500,000 sf of usable building of various types and more than 2,500 parking spaces in two multilevel parking facilities, all organized around a new landscaped campus quadrangle, with direct parking and transit access. It will provide this decidedly urban academic institution with both a new and invigorating sense of place, and an oasis for campus activities.
