X,You are correct. I was really sad when I found that out. However, it is just one of these 'yellow brick colonial' buildings. Lakeside Hospital, the grandest building on the campus, will not be touched. Hanna won't be touched either. Those are the same style as the nurse dorms (yet, much larger). Originally, UH was going to put the emergency room and entrance where the nurse dorm building is. Also, they were going to put a parking lot infront of it. A six foot cement wall would separate the surface parking lot and the Euclid sidewalk--you couldn't have dreamed it up any worse than that. Now, they are considering the nurse dorm building as a possible location for the hotel. If it were to go there, it would open up onto Euclid.
If that's the design for the Cancer Hospital, then I think the UH architects have been hanging around the Clinic's architects for too long. Yet another design that doesn't create sidewalk activity -- especially on Euclid Avenue. It doesn't front the street. Where's the opportunity for sidewalk-level mixed use?What ever happened to architects understanding how to create urban-friendly designs? Did they all die off by the 1950s? This isn't rocket science, but it sure is frustrating.
re the UHHS graphic: who the hell makes a graphic with the orientation south, i was so confused for a good 30 seconds.....
