A six-story bridge building will be constructed over Ninth Avenue to connect the new Inpatient Expansion Building to the existing trauma center.

Project description:

The Harborview Medical Center project has two major components: the Ninth & Jefferson Building and the Inpatient Expansion Building.

The Ninth & Jefferson Building will have about 144,000 square feet of usable space plus five levels of below-grade parking for about 600 cars. It will be a multipurpose facility, housing specialized services such as the King County Medical Examiner, research laboratories, dry labs, clinical services, the Involuntary Treatment Act courtroom, retail and lobby.

The Inpatient Expansion Building will have 227,000 square feet of new space that will connect to the hospital’s existing trauma center by a six-story bridge building over Ninth Avenue. Another 4,200 square feet of space will be created in tunnels that connect to the trauma center and hospital.

The project also includes seismic upgrades, a 16,000-square-foot addition to the trauma center and about 9,000 square feet of remodeled space within the trauma center.

After the new space is developed, the hospital plans to demolish the East Clinic and, possibly, Harborview Hall. Demolition would be bid under a separate contract, targeted for 2009. The demolition budget is $11 million.
